Estrella & al-Barran Ct. Dance/Period Songs
Estrella War Court Dancing
Greetings, dancers and musicians! The final set lists for the two balls at Estrella War have been posted at: http://members.cox.net/lejon/sca.html
Any interested musicians are welcome to join us to play for the balls. All the music is available at the above link in PDF format. On-site music practices will be posted as they are finalized. Copies of the music will be brought to site as well.
Dancers are welcome at both the Friday night Grand Ball and the Sunday afternoon Caroso Ball. The Caroso Ball is a dancers' choice ball, drawn from the list published at the link above. There will be little or no teaching but anyone who knows a dance is encouraged to join in. Spectators are also welcome. They are working on "cheat sheets" for the dance steps and will post these as well when they are available. Copies of the cheat sheets will also be available at the Caroso Ball. Prior to Friday night, there are plans for court dance classes during the day to teach the dances for both balls.
Attached is a two paged wordprocessed document of the information from the above website. (However to actually view the sheet music, you will need to go to the actual website url above.)
At Estrella, there probably will also be lots of classes in period songs, but that information is not yet available.
