Is this at your group or at the Dance, Heraldic and Scribe event April 8th
I would suggest you start with ECD and brawls - they seem to be the easiest
and yet not boring for new dancers
Pavans and Almans are easy but often boring. Most Italians are a little
advanced but there a few good for starting dancers.
Try these first for a good beginers selection (I don't guarentee speling)
