The music scores are alphabetized in a back pocket, beautifully printed, and put on heavy card stock.
The CD, also in a pocket, is supplied with a sheet of specifications as to tempo, bar, phrase, and repetitions.
The Kit has been designed to make the dances which would likely have been danced in St Louis in 1804 accessible to teachers, groups, musicians, and others interested in the cultural background of Lewis, Clark and the men of the Corps of Discovery.

We have done the work of researching, testing, describing, recording, and assembling. We have not included native American dances—our expertise is rooted in Country Dance—but we have included dance styles ranging from the riverfront to the ballroom. Everything you need to teach these dances to your group is provided so that you can step into the past.
