- Mar 23, 1999Hi. My name is Berengaria. I like to dance. I started dancing...well,
when I was about four, there are a whole bunch of embarrassing photos of
me after I saw my first ballet and struck "ballet poses" every time
someone wanted to take a picture of me.
Formal lessons soon followed. I took ballet, modern and square dance.
Later various polyglot folk, Tahitian and jazz. I was slow to catch on
to dancing in the SCA precisely because so much of it did not even *look*
right for the period at first.
I started studying, slowly and unsurely at first, some sources; and not
all of those were primary. It was hard to get primary sources in Oertha,
which is when I started to get interested.
I really got into studying and practicing period dance living int he
central West, where I had the opportunity to attend several practices
a week. I have a Pied d'Argent and a Silver Rondel (from Lochac) which
have various requirements for performing dance but no real requirements
for teaching, etc. I also discovered the joys of Victorian ballroom
I haven't done much dance lately just due to a busy schedule.
