And maybe an ECD (6-8)

In truth, I think the more complex English Country Dances are not likely to bring in a beginner any more than Gracca Amoroso is. But I do think having a complex ECD on the list will reassure people the "dance crowd" does not think less of people who like ECDs.

I think so. I hope so. We need 8 people and we won't have CinB. 

I'll happily teach Fain and Stingo at Caldarium's event this weekend, add it into the Salitor-time at Coronet next weekend. If nobody else is teaching intermediate ECD at Collegium, I'll do that too.

Bummer. I hope everything is ok. We'll probabaly spend extra time on Bizzaria d'Amore or Gracca Amoroso, as you and Na'hara (who is also MIA this week) know that one well.
