[Anst-dancers] Dancing fading?

Correct that this was originally set up as a Euro list, but i think we can definitely learn a few things from other communities who post.  For instance, making dance fun and laid back as Aurore points out below.  I'm as guilty as others that when frustration and doubt set in, you tend to get more than a little unmotivated to teach.  We all need to remember, myself included, that no matter how bad it gets, our attitudes and tone project more than we might think.

Unfortunately due to even less activity than this list, the other list was dissolved.

    Greetings onto the Lords and Ladies of this list,
 From the sounds of it this is about European Dancing.  Which with much regret I have no interest in, but I do have the love and passion for Middle Eastern Dancing.  I know I'm not ready to be a teacher of MED, but I do let my heart teach it to my best ability in the household I share with friends in an area that lost it's SCA status as a group.  We try for monthly get togethers, I pull out my DVDs and CDs and we learn together as friends.  At one point I was working on a Halfa for the Known World to come and join for a weekend, with dancing and feasting.  As mundane life can sometimes be a trial of itself, it put a hold on the planning.  And now I see I have to get it started again if but to show to the world, that dancing hasn't stopped but just in the moment of a break to breath again, get a glass of water, wine, or mead and wait for the next number to start.

    With a swirl of silks and bells,
Aurore Gaudin
Burkhaven Household
King's Land
