Sammy normally split his hornpipe steps into two routines for dancing and teaching purposes:  A six step Basic Hornpipe and a six step Exhibition Hormpipe.

Basic Hornpipe
Six simple steps, which Sammy developed for teaching purposes. The film clips show Sammy demonstrating these steps to Ann-Marie Hulme in 1981.  Full historical background together with notations is available in:
J. Williams, Sam Bell – The Basic Hornpipe Steps, Newcastle Series: Newcastle (2020)

Exhibition Hornpipe
The Exhibition routine contains six steps which Sammy considered to be his best and which he often performed.  The two clips show him dancing these both in full length shot and in close-up, again filmed in 1981.  Full historical background together with notations is available in:
