Large Regional Dance Practice
April 30 @ 11:00 am - 5:30 pm
Notice for Dancers (and those who would like to learn about Renaissance Dancing) in and around the Puget-Sound area and beyond: some of us are trying to kick-off the idea of a large regional dance practice once every 3-6 months (also sometimes known in the past as a “Day of Dance”)
This is not an event, just a big dance firstname.lastname@example.org Contact email for Sara de Bonneville: email@example.com, or 253-905-1483 Structure will be 4 teaching sessions, about 40 minutes ea, with time between to look through Trahaearn and Janelyn’s library of amazing source materials. This will let us really explore several of the different dance genre more in-depth, and then go look at the sources from which these dances come. Rough Schedule looks like: – 11:00 — 1st teaching session – 12:00 — 2nd teaching session – 12:45 — Lunch break (bring a sack lunch!) – 1:30 — 3rd teaching session – 2:30 — 4th teaching session – 3:30 — break for snacks, change of shoes, etc. – 4:00-5:30 — Caroso Ball! * * A Caroso-style ball is where a dancer chooses a partner and selects a dance from the list, and then their partner chooses the next dance, and so-on. Bring a sack lunch and comfortable dancing shoes (rubber soles not recommended). We will be doing a variety of English, French, and Italian dances, of all levels of ability. While most teaching content is not firmly set as yet, Master Trahaearn has agreed to do his complete run-through of the Inns of Court dances (not to be missed!). Most of us will be in modern clothes and comfortable shoes for the teaching sessions, but garb is welcome during instruction, too. Some folks will likely change into (simple) garb for the Caroso Ball. RE: COVID practices: – Per Kingdom policy updated on March 15, proof of COVID vaccination (or a negative COVID test within 72 hours), and the collection of contact tracing information, are no longer required. – We encourage those that feel more comfortable wearing masks to do so, even if no longer required by modern or society authorities. Also those who choose to wear masks for the comfort of others are encouraged to do so. – We will have hand sanitizer available, since we often hold hands in dances. An important note from the SCA: Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.
