I am from the Shire of Twae Linnes in Artemisia (Paul, Idaho). I have been doing renaissance dance since 1987 when I took classes from the college in my area. I am an elementary Music teacher and I enjoy teaching dance to my students as well.
I am trying to get the shire interested in dance with very little luck. Other gentles in neighboring shires and baronies do quite a bit of dancing, so I do get to do some - when I am not playing the music for the dance. Do you have this kind of problem in your area - lack of interest in dance? If
so, what do you do to increase interest?
What instruments do you play?
I have a 16 year old daughter who is the joy of my life. She is sewing herself some new garb as I write this. I have been in the SCA for nearly 2 years, and I received my AOA last October because of my efforts to teach dance in this shire.
What period/type of dances are you especially interested in?
