Hi all,
	The Pennsic Ball is tentatively scheduled for the second Tuesday (Aug 17). 
Here is the dance list that I've come up with, and I would like to hear 
comments about it, especially from musicians. If there's a piece that's 
really challenging to do, or needs a better arrangement, or just is a bad 
idea, please let me know ASAP. Conversely, if there's a favorite piece of 
the musicians that I've left out, I'd like to know too. There are 28 pieces 
on this list (including one branle suite TBD), even though there's no 
teaching at the Ball I'm tempted to trim the list by a few so as not to 
wear out our noble musicians. I've tried to keep a balance of genres and 
complexity in this. -Lyev
