 Hi: I sent this lady my teaching notes for the Volta - if anyone else
wants them, let me know.  The reconstruction I use is not the only one
possible, of course.  The Volta *is* a lot of fun to do.

I received this email regarding the ball and dance classes at the
upcoming St. Valentine's Day Massacre, for which I am the dance
coordinator.  I attended the class on La Volta at Terpsichore in
Cynnabar last year, but did not participate myself.  I have no personal
experience with this dance.  I've also only seen the dancing in
"Elizabeth" once or twice, so I have no idea how accurate it may be.
That is why I am asking you all for your opinions.  How accurate is the
movie?  What resources for La Volta are available, aside from Arbeau?  I
welcome your comments.

Thank you for your assistance.
