"Nothing but Dance I" had this
"Nothing but Dance II" had that
"Nothing but Dance III" had the other thing.

That's wonderful.

But this is the Atlantian Dance Symposium, a new event sponsored by the new
Dance Academie.  Time to shift the paradigm, perhaps?

1. I have several objections to the wording of the FAQ. The charter's
wording is much better.

2. Just because the Academie sponsors an event doesn't mean it's
restricted to only what the Academie promotes. Nothing but Dance has
traditionally had a GOOP (grossly out of period) class (and no GOOP
dances at the Ball.)

3. Nothing But Dance has ALWAYS had a strong middle eastern flavor,
generally with a full dance track and a couple of drumming and other
instrumental classes (zills, etc.) This track has always been
organized by Azza al Shirazi, who would probably be happy to give
advice (azzazazo at yahoo.com.) Back then she was going by Chriemhilt von
Regensburg.

4. Even Nothing But Dance I (autocratted by well-known Academie member
and dance enthusiast Bryan Morgun) had a lot of Middle Eastern classes.

5. At Nothing But Dance III the ME folks outnumbered the Renaissance
folks. Which says that we westerners were being slackers.

6. The ME folks have always been sound isolated so the drumming
doesn't interfere with the renaissance dancing.

   and III.
