I was hoping to drum up some attendance from the dance community for the
Fall Arts Symposium on October 25th held by the Canton of Loch Ruadh. The
event is at the UTA campus in the same rooms as KWDMS IV. The event is also
free - which is really cool for them to do.
A couple of us (see Lowrie and me) are offering dance classes that aren't
the usual run of the mill "I teach you x reconstruction." I'd like to get
some support on my class especially, because I think the more people who
come, the better the class will work.
Also, this might be a good chance for a guild meeting, since it is an arts
event and centrally located. This is also a couple months before the
proposed printing date of the Ansteorran Dance Manual - so this again is
Caprcia? Comments? Just an idea.
Thanks! Hope y'all can make it.
Here are the class descriptions for dance at Fall Arts:
1018 - Reconstructing Dance H.L. Philip White
Beyond learning dances by rote, you can learn where dance choreographies
come from. We will examine primary source material and begin understanding
how extant step and dance descriptions combined with pictorial evidence are
transformed into performable dances. We will discuss the importance of
facsimiles, Transcriptions, translations, tabulations, concordances, and
music. This will be applied to primary and secondary resources. We will
consider the benefit of reconstructing dances already common to the SCA and
learn how reconstructing unknown dances is important to the success of the
dance community within the Society. This class is open to all, but a firm
understanding of most Renaissance dance style is conductive to class
participation and will allow you to benefit from the full potential of this
class. Actual physical dance will be limited, primarily aiding possible
