I keep a website that catalogs dances and dance music.  (278 dances and 35+

I'm sending this so we have a clear picture of what we're talking about:
Here's the Full List from my website of GOOP & SOOP dances - take these out,
and there are still: 168 period dances found in Del's Dance Book, Eric's
Dance Book, Terpsichorie, and the Crystal Ball Cheet Sheet Books.

Here are the 110 listed dances of either SCA choreography/reconstruction,
late playford, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th century origin:
Several are possibly duplicates, and 80 of which I've never danced, seen
danced, or learned at Pennsic or anywhere else.
Most of these there are no commercially available music sources.

Leaving only *30* common "problem" dances- again, several without readily
available music sources.

**NOTE:  I had a cut/paste problem:  Female Sailor and Lamb Skinnet should
be in the "Other" Section**
