Yes,young people do love this one...this and Official Bransle are my students favorites...although today I had them doing Parson's Farewell in simply 15 minutes! Yeah!

    Now, for the rest of you.  Is there one dance that you think "looks" 
    more medieval than another?  I only ask because I hate Official 
    Bransle.  If this is the best choice (for looks and ease of teaching), 
    I'll do it, but I want to consider other possibilities. 

  Petits Vriens is pretty quintescential...Looks like a lot of the gay, happy 
  people in both manuscript illuminations and Brueghel's paintings, and is dirt 
  easy (not to mention fun---young people LOVE this one, for obvious reasons).
