It was first danced about 3 AM in the lobby of Butterfield Hall, Michigan State U. The music came from ``The six wifes of Henry VIII'' soundtrack by David Munroe and the Early Music Consort of London. The music is a compendium of 3 pieces, all period, orchestrated by David Munroe. The dance was created using pieces of various dances in an attempt to create a new, SCA dance. It was entered in an A&S competition as a modern recreation of a period style dance. Incidentally, the dance itself has since been seen being danced in both a Hollywood movie and a BBC TV show. I remain, Brusten, O.L., O.P., Etc. (one of those who danced it at 3 AM)
