It was Master Octavio who was largely responsible for
the fact that no Trimarian knows any out of period
dancing. This was not because he browbeat Korabushka
out of anyone, it was just that no one in the Kingdom
remembered how to dance. Because he wanted to play
for dance, he had to teach some people how to dance.
Now that he has done that, and he saw no reason to
teach any controversial dances, he can play music
again. I am his apprentice.
So, here's my diplomatic difficulty. I know nothing
of the corpus of out of period dances. Having no
attachment to them, I am not inclined to put them on
dance sets though I am not insensitive to the desires
of people to dance their favorites. I am coordinating
Gulf Wars dance next year. I realize that over a
series of years this has been carefully negotiated at
Pennsic but I'm not sure where the Gulf Wars dance
community is on this.
How endangered will my life be next March?
(By the way, if you are going to GW and would like to
teach a class, let me know.)
