Hmmm.  To be honest, I don't know the answer.  Katherine might.  If it
*does* prove to be an OOP figure, the hands can easily be dropped to waist
level -- the choreography would be mostly unchanged.


PS - Are J(udith), V(ard), G(reg), and K(eilyn) the only folks on the list
who use one-legger signatures?  :)

I could be wrong about this, but as far as I know, "palming" is a very
baroque thing, never practiced in the renaissance...Does anyone have any
primary source references that support palming as a pre-1600 practice?  I
would be interested if so....
