Classes will only be on Saturday 2/14/04 and several of those will be discussion classes.
Yours in service to the dream,
Lady Barbara, al-Barran, Outlands
For the intensely curious, here's the dance class schedule for
Estrella. All the classes will be on Saturday, just cuz it's easier,
and gives us a lovely opportunity to annoy the A&S competition
10am - Dance & Society in the Renaissance. Dance was a very
important part of Renaissance society. It defined a courtier and
could lead to political advancement. It could also cause a person to
be scorned and ridiculed. Come join us for a look at dance as
theatre, society and politics in the 15th and 16th centuries. Taught
by Meistres Julian ferch Rhys.
11am - Beginning English Country Dance. Heart's Ease, Rufty Tufty,
and other two-couple dances. Taught by Sasha Keyel.
12 noon - Myths & Misconceptions in SCA Dance. Many people believe
that the way we dance in the SCA is "The One True Way", completely
correct for our period. In this class, we'll look at the difference
and similarities between dance then and now. Be ready for some
surprises! Taught by Meistres Julian ferch Rhys.
1pm - Intermediate English Country Dance: Argeers. An in-depth look
at "Argeers"; or, "Playford on Acid". A previous knowledge of the
steps in English Country Dance will be useful, but is not required.
Taught by Sasha Keyel.
2pm - Anyone Can Boogie: The Basic Dances. This class will cover
many of the basic Western European Court dances that you regularly
see at Balls and events. You don't have to have any dance
experience to learn these dances and after this class you'll be able
to boogie with the best of them. Taught by Lady Katheline van Weye.
4pm - Dancers' Moot. A get-together for anyone interested in dance.
We'll be answering questions, trying new reconstructions, and just
generally exchanging dance information of all kinds!
I've just spoken to someone who found out they were coming and wants
to teach. I'm checking into whether we can get their classes into
the schedule at this point, so there might be some additions to the
schedule at a later date.
Thanks to the teachers, and, by the way, these are the class
descriptions which will be appearing in the gatebook. :)
