Actually, I've *always* found Burgundian bassedanses interesting--but I'm 
more of a musician than a dancer, and I love fifteenth-century 
instrumental music.  The first time that I saw Casseulle, danced to a 
four-part Spagna setting, I was hooked :-)

(And it's always seemed to me that an imaginative dancer can make just 
about any type of dance interesting, in any case....)


"Some musicians really fall in love with an instrument and want to live in
the sound of it, but I am more the kind of musician who loves a type of
music and will shamelessly bang away on whatever will get me to that kind
of music...."
