Guillaume and I would be willing to travel (and have in the past).  We
had great success in Namron, the Shadowlands, Adlersruhe, Eldern Hills,
and some success in Mendersham.  And we had lots of fun teaching at
Saltare, in Birmingham.  We almost travel as far to attend Philip's
practices as we used to travel from Moonschadowe to Namron.  We would
be willing to go to Austin, College Station, Houston, San Antonio,
Tulsa, or just about anywhere to teach. We can teach all of the basics,
plus 16c Italian/ La Volta/ Dance Theory.  I have Brando di Cales, and
Russell is currently working on La Caccia d'Amore... which we'll want
guinea pigs for, at some point.  I'm also planning on ripping into a
few new dances pretty soon.

Regardless, I'd probably want a list of what the group already knew/
wanted us to teach.

Can we organize new reconstruction playtime at a regional dance
practices every three or so months?  For example, we could meet in DFW
in January, Houston in April, OKC in July, and Austin or whereabouts in
October..... Not that it would happen that way exactly.  We could get
the details of this ironed out at a later date.

That's it for now.
