I did promise at least two people I'd run a volta class this year.
I still think it's worth doing, so perhaps if you want the same thing
to be run again, I can be of assistance.  I'd be happy to run the
basics and volta classes if you or someone else could run the tassle
section, or we can tag-team.  Daniele?

Yup.  I think the stage suffered somewhat from that one.  I'll definitely
be running the same class again, but looking for a 3 hour timeslot, so
I'll need either the stage or another wooden floor for that.  This will
probably have to be first week I guess.

OK.  16th C Italian is relatively common down here so I tend to forget
about it when travelling.  I guess I can run at least one Negri class.
Anyone for a combined Spagnoletto / Bizzaria class?  I can do the
Spagnoletto bits if someone else can assist with Bizzaria.
