Court Dancing: at Blaiddwyn's Winter Wolf, Estrella & al-Barran dance practices
There will be four hours of court dance classes at Blaiddwyns Winter Wolf Event on Saturday, 2/5 at UNM. Thanks to Renee, we have had a great indoor site during the winter for court dance practices, which is also very close to fighter practice park. We are meeting at the Monte Vista Christian Church at 3501 Campus Blvd NE., 12:30-2:30pm on Sunday, February 27. To get to the church, go south on Carlisle south of Lomas to Grand (Grand is 2 blocks north of Central). Turn right (west) onto Grand and go 2 blocks to the church. We will then return to al-Barran fighter practice park, Battan Park on the NW corner of Carlisle &
Lomas, for court dance practices on Sundays, March 13 & 20 from 12:30-2:30pm.
At Estrella War on Friday night starting at approximately 7pm, there will be The Estrella War Grand Ball with court dancing to live music in the Grand Court Pavilion. We will be teaching the dances for this Ball during the 4 hours of court dance classes at Blaiddwyns Winter Wolf on Saturday, February 5. The sheet music for the ball dances and links to
dance instructions for each of the dance are also available at the following website: http://home.comcast.net/~stephanie.maynard/ This website is an excellent opportunity to add to your dance music and dance instruction library. There will also be court dancing & musicians practice for Friday nights EW Grand Ball on Thursday evening starting at 7pm in the A&S Pavilion. Also on the EW schedule is a Celtic & Country Dance Ball at 6pm on Sunday evening in the A&S Pavilion. There may also be informal court dancing on Saturday evening after Grand Court in the Grand Court Pavilion.
Several court dance classes are scheduled at Estrella War: 2-3pm an English Country dance class on Friday (GCP), 2:30-4pm an Italian court dance class on Saturday (A&SP) and a Scottish & English Country court dance class 10am-2pm on Sunday (GCP). These classes will take place in either the Grand Court Pavillion (GCP) or the A&S Pavillion (A&SP). There is also a full track of middle Eastern dance & drumming classes on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and lots of singing classes and singing practice with the Known World Choir, which will give a concert on Sunday 3-5pm.
