Greetings unto the list,
Last night I completed my article (written in dialogue form a la Arbeau)
about some of the general principles that apply to Renaissance dance in the
SCA.  I am thinking now that it may be considerably too complex for the
purpose it was intended for - an introductory dance article for the Known
World Handbook.  Nevertheless, I present it to you here, for comments and
critiques.  These principles are derived from my 10+ years of teaching dance
in the Society, and I often wished somebody had told me these principles
when I was starting out, because discovering them has been somewhat of a
detective novel experience for me.  If not for the Known World Handbook,
perhaps my article can be considered for the Letter of Dance and/or the
Compleat Anachronist.
