Mmmm... yes, I agree. And in particular, the Pied has
been something intended to give people a taste of dance,
and something accessible to even very new people. We
could change that, but it should be an intentional change.
Is that what we want? I haven't gotten a feel that it is.

I believe we did Washerwoman's bransle, but that may have
been in 2004, not 2003. I'm sure we did some ECD, but I'm
not sure what.
