Debka Debka in Labanotation

From the Introduction:

In this little volume we introduce a system of notation -- Labanotation, which will enable you to learn to read a dance from the printed score just as though it were a piece of music. . . . You can learn to read and write sufficient Labanotation for your purpose while you are Folk Dancing.
