Subject: pennsicdance: Announcing the Book of Dance V!
It is my great pleasure to announce (at long last!) the publication of The
Book of Dance, vol. 5. This volume contains articles, reviews,
reconstructions, choreographies, and parodies from issues 33-40 of The
Letter of Dance, an newsletter created by and for the SCA Dance Community.
Subjects for this volume include a lively discussion music theory as it
relates to reels, period middle eastern dance, several articles on the
Gresley Manuscript, reconstructions of La Volta, a new ECD choreography, a
choreography for a canario, as well as some excellent reviews of books and
Copies are available for purchase at Cafe Press for $15 plus shipping. The
website is: http://www.cafepress.com/letterofdance. Moving to cafe press
(which does print-on-demand) has helped keep production costs low while
providing the dance community with a beautifully produced product that will
never go out of print because I don't have the time or capital to have
dozens of reprints made. I hope in future to add additional merchandise
with a dance theme if there is interest, thoughts, comments, etc. are most
welcome. All minimal proceeds go directly back into the Letter of Dance
coffers to offset the cost of publication of the newsletter.
In addition to the new book, I still have copies of Book II ($9) and Book IV
($15) available directly from me. And, of course, subscriptions to the
Letter are always available--$12 to US addresses will get you 8 issues
(about 2 years). Please contact me at letterofdance@... for more
