Conna, The only dance I had any problem with the live music was
Lenecello (sp?) but then I always miss the step change with live
music. There were a few feedback squeels but no more than normal.
>Checking with a number of persons, it did run more slowly, or
longer, than last year.
I thought the first three sets just flew by and were done sooner, but
over all, the sets finished nearish the normal time ~4ish give or
take 45mins. Alot depends on how long they choose to leave between
sets and how long the desert revel takes.
>I was not sure I liked the classes so much, as it seemed we could
have had another dance in each one, but getting the review time was
probably A Good Thing.
The teaching did seem to go much faster this year, especially the
Italian classes. Both the one I taught and the one I took could have
easily added another short dance. Perhaps more people are just using
the classes to refresh their memeory rather than learn a new dance?
Its still one of my favorite events, ranking right up there with
Lillies for concentrated fun.
Unfortunatly, I have mundane life stuff taking up this weekend so
I'll miss the dancing at Caravans :(
