As long as you give them set breaks and make sure they have water - I do not
think you will have any trouble with them keeping up for the ball. Lots of
the dances they should be pretty familiar with already.
I've tried to keep a balance of genres and
>complexity in this. -Lyev
I think its a good balance. I'm game. :-)
You could add Cassule.
>15c Italian dances: Rostiboli, Petit Riense, Gelosia, Anello, Belfiore,
I like amoroso or Leonchello over Lauro. I dont think Lauro goes over very
well - but that may be here, or on off nights when I am danicng at Pennsic.
>16c Italian dances: Gracca Amoroso, Caccia d'Amore (pinwheel part 4),
>Bizzaria d'Amore, Lo Spagnoletto, Laccio, Ballo del Fiore
I dont know Laccio. I'd like to see people doing Il Villanicco more.
>16c English: Ly Bens Distonys, Black Alman, Madam Sosilia's Alman
>16c French: Pavan to Belle Qui, Galliard (la fatigue), Toss the Duchess
>(SCA Branle de l'Official), Horses Branle, Branle Suite
I just want charlotte. Pinagay is fun.
>17c English: Jenny Pluck Pears, Hearts Ease, Rufty Tufty, Hyde Park,
>Newcastle, New Boe Peep, Black Nag, Gathering Peasecods
I like Jenny Pluck Pears - but everytime I call for it people groan. I
think i am tired of seeing Rufty Tufty and Hearts Ease together - but i know
people like it a lot. (I still dont like New Boe Peep - but I know people
love it....) Maybe add If All the World Were Paper or Saint Martins. I
really like Hearalds in Love - though it is SCA choreography - and I think
people like it a lot too, esp at double time. :-)
