Tudor Music complemented the different forms of Tudor Dance. Dancing was an extremely popular pastime during the Tudor era for both the rich and poor people. Dancing in the Tudor era was considered "a wholesome recreation of the mind and also an exercise of the body". The emergence of different styles of music and new musical instruments during the Tudor period, combined with various experiments combining different instruments, led to new dances being created. Tudor dance varied according to the social class. The court dances enjoyed by royalty, nobility and the rich were often imported from Italy, Spain or France.
The poor lower classes enjoyed the more traditional country dances such as the Jig, Morris Dancing, the Brand. These Tudor dances for poor people were closely associated with the customs and festivals celebrated in Tudor England.

Consider the use of Standard English in the way people would have spoken during this time period.
You are going to write two paragraphs announcing Annie’s arrival to Niagara and describing her intended feat titled, ‘The FEARLESS MRS TAYLOR’.
On the 14th October 1901, people standing on the platform at Niagara Train Station noticed a small crowd gathering around an old lady arriving on the Bay City train. Tentatively, Annie Edson Taylor stepped down from the train, looked up and showed the crowd a heart-warming smile. Miss Taylor has come to Niagara to carry out a death-defying stunt – to go where no man or woman has ever gone before.
In the next few days, Annie Edson Taylor will attempt to conquer the mighty falls. With incredible bravery, she will travel over Niagara Falls in a wooden barrel. Over the last few weeks, this daring stunt was dreamt up by Mrs Taylor herself. It is completely original and has never been attempted before. It is anticipated that crowds of thousands will gather along the shoreline of the river to watch the adventuress complete her stunt. Come to Niagara and see this once in a lifetime event with your own eyes.

Through the walls, I could hear the fans’ excitement out on the field and my mind began to race. Was this really happening? Was I really about to make history?
Before I knew it, we were lined up in the tunnel waiting for our names to be called…
