Thanks for the compliment. It makes us happy that others enjoy what
we're doing, even if they aren't participating.

We suspected that we weren't looking as open to others as we would have
liked. During the day, when we were doing performance for judging, it
probably put some folks off for dancing with us after court. We should
have had the heralds invite everyone to dance with us after court. It
also looked like folks were pretty tired after a big day of
displaying/performing/judging. Court was long, and I think people who
hadn't seen each other in awhile wanted to talk.

In the future, if you see Mooneschadowe dancing, don't be afraid to join
right in. We love to teach! Also, don't be afraid to request a dance. We
want everyone to join in and have fun. We also like to learn new dances,
so if we don't know it, we'll want you to teach it to us.
