westdance: Tinternell - Why don't we do it? =)

No particular reason, other than it's not that exciting a dance.  But,
as you say, it's not much worse than some we do.  I could see bringing
it into the repetoir, if for nothing more than a little variety.  For
that matter, we could look at bringing the Old Alman back.  It's
roughly the same level of complexity, and we haven't done it much in
the last 2-3 years.

I would suggest that we hold off on new stuff until after the dance
ball.  But that will be past soon.

It's not nearly so interesting as Black Alman, perhaps, but more on the level of Queen's or Lorayne.  It also give ample opportunity to flirt =)  Greg did a great job of putting the information from several different manuscripts on his webpage - http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/dance/ioc/concord.html.  I was tempted to put it on, but I thought that there might be a reason we don't do it, so I decided against it.  Anyone have any particular comments?
