        Ingeborg,

        Don't be sorry. The ball was canceled, IMHO, for good reasons. Did I want to dance? Heck ya! Bellewode prepared food and was ready to do it.... when it was scheduled. This was completely out of your hands. Court was wonderful, but it went long and the feast HAD to happen. Site was scheduled to close at 10:00 and many, including myself, realized that there was no time for the ball given this constraint. Bellewode still had fun and our new members are looking forward to the ball on April 4th with even greater anticipation given the classes they took. I myself learned a new dance that now MUST go on Bellewode's Ball List. Space and time were limited and NOTHING you could have done would have changed that (unless you have a time machine).

        Sincerely

          Its what happens to the last thing on the schedule. And in its own fashion is sadly appropriate for a Calontir anniversry event :(

            To answer Conrad's question, the dance that Ingeborg taught me was
            Ballo del Fiore. Just the idea of the flower and the scuttling around
            the room seemed very cute and fun.

            Bellewode is planning a Caroso Style ball and we want your input (that
            means everyone). We hope to use this as a learning tool in the
            following way: The current plan is to have each dance on a card,
            pinned to a board. The card will list the dance's name, its origin
            (i.e. French c. 1500, NOT PERIOD, or SCA invention of period
            technique), and its formation (round for as many as will, three people
            in a line, etc.). A dancer will then pick their dance, announce it,
            invite whoever they want to dance it and hand the card over to the
            musicians. If people need it to be taught, we will do it at that
            time. So dances could involve everyone in the room doing an old
            favorite or a perfect time for someone to show off something fancy and
            complicated and allowing everyone else to watch. Of course I am not a
            mind reader, so if you have a performance dance you would like to do,
            let me know and I will add it to the list of dances and we will make
            sure the musicians have the music ahead of time.

            I hope that this can be used as a great new learning tool and give the
            Bellewode Ball a bit of variety.

              For those of you that missed Jubilee three items in court came up that
              I thought should be repeated here:

              Lord Peter (and I apologize for not remembering the rest of his name)
              was awarded a Golden Calon Swan. For those of you who are not
              familiar with him, he plays the violin in the pit.

              Lady Lucia is now Her Ladyship Lucia after being given a Calon Lily!
              Her scroll was beautiful and the accolade well earned I think.

              And Mistress Conna was awarded a Court Baronet! Her new shiny hat has
              musical notes on it that apparently are from a song involving a
              porkchop... I must admit I am slightly confused, but I am sure she can
              explain it.

              Where would we dancers be without people like these three? An iPod
              can only get you so far.... though sometimes its batteries do last longer.

                Thanks to HL Lucia, for prepping all the music packets. They sure were fun
                to use during court. ;)

                And Ingeborg, thanks for organizing everything. Heaven knows the
                cancellation was unavoidable. I hope it didn't spoil the fun of the rest of
                the day.

                And thanks to all the musicians for playing during morning and evening
                courts, and to Kasha for taking charge of evening court, and to Emelye for
                her fun improve. I know it was a crazy space to play in. Thanks to all for
                making the hike up the scary steep steps. :)

                    Caroso-style balls are a very nice and period type of dance but
                    i'm not sure its the best way to go for the main and only evening dance at
                    an event - especially of newer dancers. Though I do sort of like the card idea.

                    By default in a caroso style ball (CSB) only one couple or set does any
                    particular dance, resulting in more sitting and less dancing for most people.
                    This can be mitigated by generally making every dance be of the
                    'and all who would join us' type of invite. SCA people in general and college
                    students in paricular seem to be more in the 'do it' than 'watch it' inclinations

                    It can also make inviting a partner difficult especially with people who
                    either don't know many dances or don't the nams of the dances they know.
                    So either you end up asking people you know, know certian dances or there
                    can be long discussions trying to figure out a mutually known dance.

                    It also means its harder to teach to the ball list as its not exactly know until
                    the dance is called. Plus the musicians must learn be ready with more to
                    learn as well (they need to know all the dances on the pick from list - even if only
                    half get danced).

                    Lastly putting a new person on the spot to pick the next dance may be asking much
                    - maybe the current crop is made of stronger stuff, but it would have made me nervous
                    in my first year or two.


                    OK even with all of that, it would stilll be interesting to incorporate this somehow.
                    My 2 suggestions are to either run just one set of the ball (and not the first or last) this
                    way and limit it to fewer dances - all of which are easy enough to be taught and ask
                    each person to choose as their partner someone they have not danced with before and
                    make all for as many as will (people, couples or sets).

                    It anyone has a truly fancy performance dance they want to do this could be scheduled
                    during a break.

                    The other posibility would be to turn the last class period into a CSB, joining both dance tracks
                    and idealy even bring the musicians into things.This could be used to train both the style of
                    ball and some new dances.

                    Ok so those are my thought as how to incoprorate some good ideas in a way to IMO maximize
                    the fun for the largest amount of people. Its possible our biggest Caroso fan (Tsire) may disagree :)
                    However you go I'll offer whatever I can do to make it the most fun for the most people.

                    Conrad

                    Subject: [CalontirDance] The Bellewode Ball



                    To answer Conrad's question, the dance that Ingeborg taught me was
                    Ballo del Fiore. Just the idea of the flower and the scuttling around
                    the room seemed very cute and fun.

                    Bellewode is planning a Caroso Style ball and we want your input (that
                    means everyone). We hope to use this as a learning tool in the
                    following way: The current plan is to have each dance on a card,
                    pinned to a board. The card will list the dance's name, its origin
                    (i.e. French c. 1500, NOT PERIOD, or SCA invention of period
                    technique), and its formation (round for as many as will, three people
                    in a line, etc.). A dancer will then pick their dance, announce it,
                    invite whoever they want to dance it and hand the card over to the
                    musicians. If people need it to be taught, we will do it at that
                    time. So dances could involve everyone in the room doing an old
                    favorite or a perfect time for someone to show off something fancy and
                    complicated and allowing everyone else to watch. Of course I am not a
                    mind reader, so if you have a performance dance you would like to do,
                    let me know and I will add it to the list of dances and we will make
                    sure the musicians have the music ahead of time.

                    I hope that this can be used as a great new learning tool and give the
                    Bellewode Ball a bit of variety.

                    Sincerely,
                    Ermenrich

                    Regarding the Caroso style ball for Bellewode: I think the Caroso concept can be adapted to the main ball format quite well. I think Conrad s points are good

                      Regarding the Caroso style ball for Bellewode:

                      I think the Caroso concept can be adapted to the main ball format quite well. I think Conrad's points are good but can be mitigated. The card idea is fantastic. By creating the cards, you determine the set list. A traditional Caroso ball does have a set list so musicians will not have to have a huge catalogue of music available. If you wih to do a perormance, be prepared with a music backup so as not to tax the musicians should they not wish to be taxed. If the cards had a bare bones step description on it as well it could help people choose who are unfamiliar.
                      Also the host will need to be willing to guide the indecisive in thier choices. This is a great opportunity to build relationships and make new friends! Those of us who have whizbang performance dances at the ready need to be willing to do them but equally willing to choose strangers, newbies, and dances of ease for all. It is up to those of us with the familiarity of the dances and this style to set the tone and create examples of goodwill and fun in this format.
                      It can be great. I'd love to see it as the primary format. I think, with attention to the possible pitfalls, and a positive attitude it can work and work well. I'm willing to help make it so.

                      So excited. Bellewode will be Henry's first SCA event.
                      Tsire
