1227RE: [CalontirDance] Bellewode Ball List
- Mar 23, 2009A very nice list.
I agree with Tsire on Confesse and Bizzaria (now that many know Gracca
Amorosa its time to introduce another fun but flashy dance).
I do have one question, is there a particular reason to include Female
Sailor. Is this a crossover between sca and other period dance
groups in Kirksville? ? I like it a lot, but its dangerously close to
"It was originally French and included in Raoul-Augur Feuillet's 1703
Recueil de contredanse along with a longways proper dance,
'La Matelotte', which Feuillet had himself written to go with the tune.
In 1710 John Essex published a translation of this work,
For the Further Improvement of Dancing, in which the dance is given as
'The Female Saylor'."
It is interesting that it's a French dance in an otherwise English dance
Saturday Night , Sunday Morning is a good more period replacement for it
that includes gypsies if that's one to the attractions.
