First hour, simpler dances:

(November 17th, 2011 by Katherina Weyssin)

We made a playlist of all the dances on the Canterbury Fair ball list, put in on random, danced everything as is came up, and practiced more intensely those that we had trouble with.

(November 10th, 2011 by Katherina Weyssin)

  • Amoroso
  • Cesarina
  • Pungente Dardo
  • Gracca Amorosa
  • Contentezza d'Amore

  • La Figlia di Guglielmino

Finally put all four verses of Spagnoletta Nuova in modo di Madriglia together. More revision of Lioncello, Contrapasso Nuovo.


(September 21st, 2011 by Katherina Weyssin)

Present: Anna, Caterine, William, Katherina

Learned the third verse of Spagnoletta Nuova in modo di Madgriglia. Brought Contrapasso Nuovo out of mothballs (doing it with a missing couple). Brushed up Leoncello Vecchio. Played with Amoroso, and the random playlist.


Spagnoletta works to Ramstein, far better than you'd think.

(September 15th, 2011 by Katherina Weyssin)

Katherina, William and Caterine had a full, strenuous but fairly casual evening.

After warming up (Spero, some others I now forget) we spent the first half of the practice revising the first half of Spagnoletta Nuova in modo di Madriglia.

The rest of the evening was improvisatory:
