      Hi from Conrad

      >Hi, all. Conna here. Hope you all had a blessed Christmas.

      Yea, someone out there is reading this!

      >I can actually practice!

      Speeking of practice - I think I would like to make actual live recorded
      (as opposed to electronic) music available for practice. I am not happy
      with what I've been able to do on the computer. There are some on my list
      I don't have music available to teach the dance to. If it bothers anybody
      we could always put on the terms of use that the music is not to be used
      if live music is available.

      I would like to actually start before dark - at the very least it makes
      easier and there are some who just won't/can't dance in torchlight.

      These 3 should be available somewhere - I'm pretty sure these are
      the names of the dances from priod sources.

      These 2 can be done to almost any music

      This is an SCA dance - it probably uses music from
      some other Allemande I don't know which - Its from Meridies

      Also from Meridies - I've never heard live music for it.
