Merrilyn

Learn the Merrilyn at Long-Steps

We’ll take you through all the steps from scratch. This is a beginner level dance so, even if you’ve never danced before, this one is for you. You do not need a partner to learn the dance, your instructor will dance through it with you.

Long-Steps currently teaches the Merrilyn periodically during our Beginner Classes, and by Private Tuition.

Long-Steps teaches the Merrilyn according to a combination of Russ Hesketh’s New Vogue Championship Dances (6th Ed.) and Neville Boyd’s New Vogue Sequence Dancing and the Viennese Waltz.
