A Summary of Dancing at Pennsic 21

... as remembered by Mistresss Rosina:

People listed as being in charge of 'Music/Dance' were Lord Geoffrey Chamberlain and Lady Rosamund de Tournai. However, I think Justin du Coeur was in charge of the ball. On Monday the newspaper had an article by him, saying that the ball was getting too large and noisy, so there would be no teaching or calling. He noted that there would be dance classes every day in the barn (I'm not sure if these were extra ones - I have no record), and some teaching every evening. And he gave a tentative list of dances for the ball, being: Bransles = Cassandra, Pinagay, Charlotte, War, Scottish, SCA + Arbeau's Malteses, Washerwomen's, Pease, Horses, Montarde, Official. Free Galliard/La Volta, Carolingian Pavan + tourdion, Spanish Pavan, Chestnut, Gathering Peascods, Heart's Ease, Jenny Pluck Pears, Picking of Sticks, Rufty Tufty, Upon a Summer's Day, Grimstock, Hyde Park, Parson's Farewell, Black Nag, Sellenger's Round, Nonesuch, Return of Spring, Mannschaft Pavan, Hole in the Wall, Earl of Salisbury, Madame Sosilia's, Black Alman, Casuelle La Nouvelle, Geloxia, Ballo del Fiore, Saltarello 'La Regina'.

Classes ran from Mon Aug 10 to Sat Aug 15. 144 were listed.
