    OK Tsire - you make a good point with Korbushka. The Stupid Squire Dance/Ly Bens shall replace Korbushka for next dance practice. I was trying to fill up time

      OK Tsire - you make a good point with Korbushka. The Stupid Squire Dance/Ly Bens shall replace Korbushka for next dance practice. I was trying to fill up time with Korbushka since we don't know that many dances and one of our members already knew it. Sara Sophia couldn't make it last time to teach the new dances you taught her at Crown. Murdoch led ALL the dances in her place though. He even told the group how much dancing helps with footwork, which thereby improves fighting technique!

      Also, my friend, who used to live in the Outlands (Unser Hafen), said she used to dance something called a "Circle Waltz." I asked her to hum the tune. She couldn't remember it, but said it sounded like something you'd hear in a Chinese restaurant. Do you know what she could be talking about?

      Thanks,

      Emelye

      Re Korobushka:
      I (and many others who may speak on thier own) have been working for a long time to get this 1920's broadway take on a Russian folk dance out of the popular vernacular of the European Dancer in Calontir and the Known World. Adding it to your local repertoire and introducing it to new folks debilitates a cause near and dear to me. While it is indeed and enjoyable dance, it has about as much to do with living history of our period as the Electric Slide. Please consider this before deciding to add it to your repertoire.

      That sounds interesting. We might try the "Hurried Negotiations" variant when we get more advanced. Regarding the "Korbushka clap," one of the other members of the Barony is supposed to teach Korbushka next time. She's from the Outlands and apparently, they danced Korbushka frequently out there. I can hear a "Korbushka clap" when I'm playing music, but I'm usually not looking up enough from the music to register a visual. That shall soon change.

        Emelye,

        I understand where you're coming from. Thanks to you and to Murdoch for putting so much energy into this. I hope that your friend will continue to explore period dancing while she is in Calontir.
        As for the Circle Waltz....it's most likely a Laendler. The Laendler is a polka/waltz country dance style that formalized over time into the waltz we know today. Documentation and woodcuts presumably depicting this dance appear to be from the 1800's or later. The interesting trivia about this one is that those who did it in the SCA used the same music and polka waltz chorography that you can see bits and pieces of in the father daughter dance and ballroom scenes of the movie The Sound of Music. Extra out of period bonus points there - folk dance, 1800's, AND from a movie! WOW! :)

        Keep up the good work guys!
        Tsire

          Emelye,

          I'm sorry I didn't make it last time. Playdate plans got changed too late for me to make other arrangements for Nathaniel. Next time I may just try bringing a 6 year old and see if he likes dance. :-D

          I will try to have Ly Bens worked up for next time. :-) I learned so many dances at Crown, I'm not sure I can remember them all. :-)

Attached is the completed dance class list as was comunicated to the Lilies staff. A few minor adjustments had to be made as some things needed to be held at the perminant shelter as well. Please look it over. Thanks again, and I will see you there! Helena.
