Thank you for the information.  That's one dance whose origins I've never known, although I remember Vashti teaching it in the Middle after she had been living in Ansteorra.

Duchess Rondallyn's Pavan is a creation of Duchess Rondallyn of
Golgotha's and Lady Calea's.  Her Grace was a member of the Barony of
the South Downs, Meridies, some years before I joined the SCA in 1998.
I was told that Rondallyn wanted a single dance that included the
steps from various Renaissance styles, but don't know whether this is
true.  She is no longer involved with the Society and I last heard
that she was participating in Mountain Man Rendesvous.  I have no
information about Lady Calea.  The music, "Toota Loot" (from Mannheim
Steamroller's "Fresh Aire II") is in volume three of "Early Period and
Popular Dance Music" but Master Avatar did not retain it when he
printed volume IV.  This dance has even lost popularity here, in the
Kingdom in which it was developed.
