If it's listed that way on Whirlygig- it's because in one of the cheat sheet
books it said SCA Choreography or reconstruction.

I'll take some time this weekend to dig my cheet sheet books & sources out
of my (still) unsorted Pennisc pile and see where that came from to clear up
this confusion.

In the meantime, let this sidebar tangent to the conversation go  :)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that Gracca
Amorosa was a 16th century cascarda from Caroso's Il Ballarino (1581),
and thus a period dance.  I'm curious as to why it's being listed as an
SCA Choreography.

I believe at least a couple of other dances on the
GOOP/SOOP/SCA_choreography list posted earlier are also from either Caroso
or first edition Playford (i.e. Gratia d'amore and Scotch Cap).
