International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Round Dance
Modern social ROUND DANCING is choreographed and cued ballroom dancing that progresses in a circular pattern, counter-clockwise around the dance floor. The two major categories of ballroom rhythm found in round dancing are the smooth or international rhythms, such as foxtrot and waltz , and the Latin rhythms, such as cha-cha and rhumba . It is not to be confused with circle dancing , which is a type of folk dance where dancers are connected in a circular chain. CONTENTS * 1 Description * 2 Types * 3 See also * 4 External links DESCRIPTIONRound dancing differs from free-style ballroom dancing in that each round dance has been fully choreographed ahead of time, and a "cuer " or leader at the front of the ballroom tells the dancers, as they dance, what steps to do. As the music plays, and just ahead of the beat , so the dancers have time to respond, the cuer names each dance figure in the choreography

Caller (dance)
A CALLER is a person who prompts dance figures in such dances as line dance , square dance , and contra dance . The caller might be one of the participating dancers, though in modern country dance this is rare. In round dance a person who performs this function is called a CUER. Their role is fundamentally the same as a caller, in that they tell dancers what to do in a given dance, though they differ on several smaller points. In northern New England contra dancing, the caller is also known as the prompter.

Folk Dance
FOLK DANCES are dances that are developed by people that reflect the life of the people of a certain country or region. Not all ethnic dances are folk dances; for example, ritual dances or dances of ritual origin are not considered to be folk dances. Ritual dances are usually called "Religious dances" because of their purpose. The terms "ethnic" and "traditional" are used when it is required to emphasize the cultural roots of the dance. In this sense, nearly all folk dances are ethnic ones. If some dances, such as polka , cross ethnic boundaries and even cross the boundary between "folk" and "ballroom dance", ethnic differences are often considerable enough to mention, e.g., Czech polka vs

Gaelic Revival
The GAELIC REVIVAL (Irish : Athbheochan na Gaeilge) was the late-nineteenth-century national revival of interest in the Irish language (then known as Gaelic, which is more often applied to Scottish Gaelic
Scottish Gaelic
today) and Irish Gaelic culture (including folklore, sports, music, arts, etc.). Irish had diminished as a spoken tongue, remaining the main daily language only in isolated rural areas, with English having become the dominant language in the majority of Ireland. Interest in Gaelic culture was evident in the middle of the nineteenth century in the scholarly works of John O\'Donovan and Eugene O\'Curry , and the foundation of the Ossianic Society . Concern for spoken Irish led to the formation of the Society for the Preservation of the Irish Language in 1877, and the Gaelic Union in 1880. The latter produced the Gaelic Journal

Quadrilles
The QUADRILLE is a dance that was fashionable in late 18th- and 19th-century Europe and its colonies. Performed by four couples in a rectangular formation, it is related to American square dancing . The Lancers , a variant of the quadrille, became popular in the late 19th century and was still danced in the 20th century in folk-dance clubs. A derivative found in the Francophone Lesser Antilles is known as kwadril , and the dance is also still found in Madagascar and is within old Jamaican / Caribbean culture. The quadrille consists of a chain of four to six contredanses , courtly versions of English country dances that had been taken up at the court of Louis XIV and spread across Europe. Latterly the quadrille was frequently danced to a medley of opera melodies

Set Dance
A COUNTRY DANCE is any of a large number of social dances of the British Isles in which couples dance together in a figure or "set", each dancer dancing to his or her partner and each couple dancing to the other couples in the set. A set consists most commonly of two or three couples, sometimes four and rarely five or six. Often dancers follow a "caller" who names each change in the figures. Introduced to France and then Germany and Italy in the course of the 17th century, country dances gave rise to the contradanse, one of the significant dance forms in classical music . Introduced to America by French immigrants, it remains popular in the United States as contra dance and had great influence upon Latin American music as contradanza . The Anglais (from the French word meaning "English") or Angloise is another term for the English country dance. A Scottish country dance may be termed an Ecossaise . Irish set dance is also related
