Folk Dance Bibliography

By Dick Oakes


International Folk Dancing U.S.A. by Betty Casey I first compiled a list of folk dance teaching references for a folk dance teacher training seminar. There were many works that I did not include for lack of research time but which are now in this list. Also, on March 28, 2014, I received Ron Houston's bibliography from the Society of Folk Dance Historians, that I have incorporated into this list which now includes publications other than books. Sorry, no annotations or number of pages on the additions.

I am pleased to have been a contributor to Betty Casey's International Folk Dancing U.S.A. (Doubleday and Company, 1981. 331 pp.), in which Mrs. Casey writes,

"...Dick Oakes, an all-around international folk dance instructor, helped in checking the many dance instructions and the Lexicon definitions. He devised the clever system of using a larger and smaller raised capital letter (RL) to indicate that a step can be done with either the right or left foot; he also assisted with photo illustrations and provided the material for "Yugoslavian Folk Dancing."

Happy researching! ~Dick Oakes

Rice brings Bulgarian folk music to life by focusing on the biography of the Varimezov family, including the musician Kostadin and his wife Todora, a singer, and combines interviews with his own experiences of learning how to play, sing and dance Bulgarian folk music.
