What's different in this update?

We've added 50 new cribs this month, some newly devised dances - details sent to the MiniCrib Team over the last few weeks, plus filling in the gaps with dances published years ago. The main sources for the cribs are:

RSCDS Exter 50th Anniversary Book

"Formation Foundations" - Chris Ronald.  This is an excellent collection of 32 dances designed to introduce a chosen formation to a class, within a dance where other figures would be familar to the dancers.  The book is available from The Sunday Class website ( and there is an acompanying CD also available, recorded by Jim Lindsay.

You can download new cribs here

We have decided to separate out the page of Abbreviations used in MiniCribs. You can download a handy single page document showing just the abbreviations we use in our cribs here

In the same way, you can download descriptions for many of the figures or formations found in our cribs here.  If you wish, you can copy and paste a figure description into you crib sheet to give more detail if required.
