– a dance to a musical style of music in which the instruments may be considered part of the performance without being included in the actual dance.

As a general rule, if the group has been in a group since before 1914, then it is a social dance, and therefore, has a history of social dancing, and thus qualifies as an “old music” and has a dance history.
What are the rules for selecting “old music” and what are the dance styles they qualify as?
“Old music” is the music that was originally included in the category of “Old music,” and will be included in the category of “Old music” (and in the category of “new music”). It can be defined as “an old music that is still in use for some reason.” For example, if you think of “Old music ” (or “Old music for the dancing”), then perhaps “Old music” is “the music used over the years for the dancing at a birthday dinner for one person’s grandmother or aunt” (as opposed to “new music”) or if you think of “Old music ” (or “Old music for the dancing”), then perhaps “Old music” is a “new music” where the dance is done in some modern-day form (e.g. ballet or rock music).
This category, as defined by the Association of Dance Treasures (see below), does not include any music that originated in Europe since 1914. It also does not include any “old music” for the dancing of children, as these can be excluded under “Old music”.
There is a great deal of confusion about what is considered old music, and therefore what categories qualify as “old music” and which categories qualify as “new music
