Description
Dancers working with undead musicians will be taught later. ;) This class will discuss how dancers, and especially ball leaders, can work smoothly with live dance music ensembles. Organization of sheet music, dance lists, rehearsals, timing, repeats, and regional variants all make this area of dance organization challenging, but with some preparation and communication, the ball will go smoothly. Sophia the Orange and Dafydd Arth have 24 years of experience with Musica Subterranea playing live and recording SCA Dance Music. Mistress Azza has many years experience running and playing in dance bands. Plenty of time will be allowed for Q&A.
