      Well, TECHNICALLY the easiest dance on the list to learn is Piantone -
      couples in a circle with the ladies on the outside, gentleman form a "star",
      Do pivas around the "star" to the music, caller tells you to go up or back
      one (or more) partners, or to reverse and piva the other direction, or to
      switch and put the ladies to the inside of the "star". DONT STOP THE PIVA
      CIRCLE AT ANY TIME. Continue with the caller till the music is done or the
      dancers have all messed up trying to find the partner that is "four back, or
      six forward, or switch and one forward" and have fallen out of the dance.

      Hyde Park and Confesse are both nice and slow but certain sections/verses
      can be confussing to explain in print - easier to show you. NOT my lady
      cullen - its not what I would call a slow dance. I'd have to say go for
      piete riens - not particullarly slow but probably the next easiest to learn.
      Or possibly hearts ease or black nag - good english country standards.

      Subject: [CalontirDance] Next easiest dance from Lilies Ball?

      Hi everyone,

      Sara Sophia and I were wondering what's the next easiest dance Mag Mor could
      learn from the Lilies Ball list. We have one more practice before Lilies. So
      far from the list, we know Carolingian Pavan and Ly Bens. Murdoch and I are
      going to try to teach Black Alman. Is there another dance from the Ball list
      someone could recommend? Is "My Lady Cullen" easy? I know the music is
      relatively slow. Sara Sophia was looking for a slower dance. (Slower than
      Charlotte or Horse's Bransle)

      Here's the complete Ball list:
      Carolingian Pavan (Mag Mor knows this)
      My Lady Cullen
      Heralds in Love

      Black Alman (Mag Mor will know this)
      Gracca Amorosa
      Heart's Ease
      Saturday Night/Sunday Morn
      Hyde Park
      Petit Vriens

      Black Nag
      Sellinger's Round
      Ly Bens Dystonis (Mag Mor knows this)
      Rosti Boli Gioiso
      Picking of Sticks
      Cantiga 119 (Piantone)

      Thanks for your help! -- Emelye
