child arrived (over two years now since our last event, whereas we used to
attend at least 8-10 a year). Back when Philippa and I were dancemaster
and dancemistress for the Barony of Marinus (Tidewater Virginia), though,
we held two or three practices each month.
As for the dances, we mostly did the Inns of Court dances, Arbeau, some
English country (Rufty Tufty, Heart's Ease, Gathering Peasecods, Jenny
Pluck Pears, and Sellenger's Round were probably the most common), plus a
few others. No basse dance (I don't know any) and no Italian Ren (I've
tried a couple, but I'm not that graceful).
>Another question: What do you know about these dances?Not much, other than their sources.
