Many of our usual dances, with a few twists.
You are here
Lots of dances this evening, as we brushed up for the ball on Saturday.
Some more intense practice on recent material rather than dancing by request this week. A good workout for the knees!
A new dance - Bassa Colonna, and several old ones.
A fairly quiet night at dance practice this week, but we got through a number of dances in preparation for the upcoming Birthday Ball and Bal d'Argent.
We think we've settled on a new version of Rustica Amorosa, and will feel no need to change it soon.
Things we've known well in the past, but not done recently, or which our recent practice has taught us we need more work on.
- Rostiboli for two, then for three, focussing on ombreggiare and ondeggiare
- Branle de Poictou
- Branle de Montarde
Our first class for the year: revisiting a bunch of old favourites, practicing the galliard, and learning Gelosia for the first time in several years.
- Rostiboli Gioioso
- Washerwomen's branle
- Horses' branle
- Earl of Essex Measure
Present: Anna de Wilde, Catherine, Katherine of Glastonbury, Caterine de Vantier, William de Cameron, Katherina Weyssin
