Our project for May was Twisted Picnic by Gill Emerson. It was originally written for a Halloween virtual ceilidh to the Teddy bears picnic music, hence the name.
Here is the walkthrough: Learning Twisted Picnic
We asked people to send us video clips of them dancing and this is the result: Twisted Picnic - danced at a distance
Fromage à Trois produced another wonderful waltz track for us: A Waltz for Aly
