I've been working up stuff for local classes for the ball.
Which of the ball dances do you feel you can play music for?

There are 8 2 hour classes scheduled for Lilies (Monday through Thursday
10 AM till Noon and 1 to 3 PM). We've already got the time and space
I asked Sajhar and she said the RUSH book will printed with the schedule as
Crown (May 27) so there is still some time to match teachers to subject to
So far I have 3 firm classes and 2 tentative ones. SO I'm still looking for
at least 3 more teachers (or at least classes)
1 Review for the ball
2 Intermediate ECD
3 General multi style intro to dance
t1 Survey of Itialian dance
t2 beginning ECD
Anyone else want to teach at lilies.
If we get enough we could expland classes to the first sunday or maybe
even first saturday. Also there could be classes on the last friday and
if we want.
- OK, (finally) got an email confirming when I'm (or someone's) teaching
2 classes of Introduction to dance
9:00 and 10:00.
4 classes of General instruction for Lilies dancing
1:00, 2:00, 3:00, and 4:00.
I would love some help with Intro to dance, I talk a whole bunch and go
over some basic dances from the genre's I know. If someone could lead the
dancing, I could play the music. Which works better for many reasons, not
the least of which is my lack of tapes and recording equipment (gee,
just realized I have no Allemandes on the list. Black is the only one I
really know the steps to.
Double (common) Branle
SCA Maltese Branle
New Boe Peep
I need to make a list of what dances will be taught when in the afternoon.
General guidelines are better than nothing. In hour long blocks, how does:
1:00 Arbeau - French Renaissance, Branles and Pavans
2:00 Italian and Allemandes (Gresley too if someone can teach)
3:00 English Country
4:00 More English Country, Quen Quer Que if Conrad is there to teach,
anything left (and believe me, we can't fit everything in. All we can
really hope to do for most is introduce the styles and get people
comfortable with trying)
Conrad, the only dances I'm not comfortable playing:
Whirligig - I can play until the dancing's done, but the music is weird and
I've never been able to watch the dance and figure out what's going on
Angus Reel - I don't have music, and have never heard it.
Mertiritza - same here. I understand from someone on the folkdance
newsgroup that it's Greek?
Ivy Allemande - ???Music???
L'Escargot and tangle bransle just go to music the musicians can stand as I
understand it (and are darn near the same dance?)
Il Piantone also goes to anything.
I've got music for Ly Ben Distonys and Pizocara but we should make sure the
repeats are the same as what we'll do at Lilies (I've played them with
