Howdy, all. Question: does anyone have the full choreography for the SCA
invention Fickle Ladies? It's apparently on this year's Black Rose Ball
playlist, and I need to give it a teach-through or two locally before then.
(Fickle Ladies is distinctive as the most *fragile* dance ever concocted
-- if anyone in the set makes a mistake, or hesitates even briefly in
the wrong spot, the entire set will quickly collapse beyond any hope of
recovery. So if folks are to have any hope of survival on the dance
floor, I need to teach it in advance.)
Anyway, it's been some years since I've done it, and I don't remember it
well enough to teach any more, so I'm looking for a writeup. And
curiously, the only one I'm finding on the Web is in Finnish:
Far as I can tell from Google, the dance is very popular in Finland. Not
quite sure how a Bridge invention got out there, but the SCA is
mysterious in these ways.
(And may I just say, I'm fascinated by the above site. Can't read a
bloody *word* of it, and Google Translate doesn't support Scandanavian
languages, but it appears to be a Finnish wiki of period dance. Very neat.)
So: anybody have a detailed description?
