If I'd had money to get there and pay site fee, then I would have gladly
danced with your troupe! I love court dance, it is one of my favorite
SCA activities. Unfortunately, I have not been able to dance sine
Squires' and Cadets' Invitational last spring. Not enough willing
dancers in my shire, no music, not anyone to instruct.....
Though I once could have taught dance, it has been almost four years
since I had practice often enough to *remember* any steps. Now, I just
have a vague happy memory of how much fun dancing used to be. I've
thought about breaking down and buying one of the dance manuals and a
set of tapes, but why bother...who would I teach the dances to?
I've just about given up on courtly dance in the Western Region. I
would love it if someone were to surprise me....
