What exactly do you mean by "court dance". I am not sure if some of the line-
type dances I enjoy to do - the Farndole for example - could be considered
"court dances" (although I could very possible be wrong?). Could this be further
explained? If this terminology is not meant to restrict the type of dances taught
and encouraged, then why is it even used? Why not just "dance"?
