We attempt many different dances, some old and traditional and some new and created in-house. The style of AnnieMation is eclectic and evolving and we have been known to add our own unique little flourishes to liven things up. That way we never have to admit to making A MISTAKE!!!

We are hoping also to revive some more of the dances we used to do in the past which have been neglected as we’ve been teaching the core repertoire to new dancers.
Here are our Dance Calls Cards
1- Tingley, Saddleworth, Cotton Reels, Piper’s Ash, 17th, Green Willow, Anstey Mill, Newton, Polka Dot, Preston Royal
2 – Gisburn, Cossgrove, Jack;s Rant, Ropewalk, Tinner’s Rabbit, Carr Lodge, Oyster Feast, Hindley, Clitheroe, Lostock Junction
We are starting to add our musical notation to not MuseScore (a free program). Then add it here. It lets us add various formats (but not squeezie box dots) fairly essily. The Banjo seem to be obsessed with adding to the high string so may not be that much use. Contact Paul (via AM Facebook) if want specific version added.
