Introductions from new member
- Greetings to the list.
As requested by the moderator, I'm posting my introduction.
My name is Lin Shiao Mei. I am of the barony of al-Barran, formerly
of the College of St. Golias. My interest in dancing is two-fold:
primarily I am interested in collecting sheet music appropriate for
distribution to musicians to provide live music for dancing, and I am
interested in learning the dances myself.
To the end of the first interest, collecting and distributing music, I
founded Scorpion Scales, currently under the leadership of Lady
Melody Shaw, one of the charter members. I have also set up a
website that includes all of our current repertoire, as well as links to
some of the better known sites for sheet music.
In learning the dances, I am interested because they are fun, and
also with the mind of teaching them myself. (Currently, only to my
household, but also, as a backup caller, in case there isn't one
available for a given event, or for starting up a dance group if I move
out of kingdom again.)
On a completely different note: I have a Chinese persona (NO, not
Mongolian or Japanese or any of the other descendant races, but
Chinese!) and I am curious to know if either the fan dance, or the
ribbon dance are at all period, and if so how I might go about
learning them. Mundanely I am ABC - American Born Chinese, so
am about as knowledgeable on such topics as any Wai Guo Ren
(foreigner). If either of these dances are at all appropriate, I'd love
to perform them at a MidWinter or some such event, as a either a
solo performance, or very small group performance.
That's me in a nutshell, I think.
Yours in Service,
Lady Lin Shiao Mei, or Lady Lin, or just plain Mei (PLEASE do NOT
call me "Lady Mei," as this is incorrect for my persona - (mka Mei
