Hi from Conrad
>Hi, all. Conna here. Hope you all had a blessed Christmas.
Yea, someone out there is reading this!
>Thanks, Conrad, for putting this all together. And well enough in advance
>I can actually practice!
Speeking of practice - I think I would like to make actual live recorded
(as opposed to electronic) music available for practice. I am not happy
with what I've been able to do on the computer. There are some on my list
I don't have music available to teach the dance to. If it bothers anybody
if live music is available.

>8 or 8:30 seems right to me. I think it might have been earlier last year.
>seem to remember having to rush to get there, too, and I wasn't even
I would like to actually start before dark - at the very least it makes
easier and there are some who just won't/can't dance in torchlight.

>Katriana, do you have music for these?
These 3 should be available somewhere - I'm pretty sure these are
the names of the dances from priod sources.
> Mage on a Cree (Playford, 1st)
> Pinagay Bransle (Arbeau)
> Lorayne Allmande (Arbeau/Inns of Court)
These 2 can be done to almost any music
> L'Escargot (??)
> Tangle Bransle (Arbeau?)
This is an SCA dance - it probably uses music from
some other Allemande I don't know which - Its from Meridies
> Ivy Allemande (SCA) Line of couples?
Also from Meridies - I've never heard live music for it.
> Mediritza (Folk dance?)
