Lol. That is the situation I was in when I first started dancing in  
the SCA almost 20 years ago. I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to  
remember the dance steps from one winter season to the next, since  
that was the only time we seemed to be dancing. So, when I was  
baronial A&S minister I worked to get the Bryn Gwlad dance guild going  

I'm not sure where you are, but you might want to try the same thing,  
find your local dance guild and if there isn't one, work on getting  
one started. You may be able to encourage other more experienced local  
dancers to come teach from time to time, or perhaps even be able to  
get some folks from out of town to come teach in a session or two.

(Who still has trouble remembering which steps go with which music,  
until a walk-through or the dance starts)
