2 November 2015 – Scotia

I had intended to 'review' as many dances as I could. This program is supposed to be easy/familiar because the dances have been done repeatedly. This is the intent of the dance list in the first place. There shouldn't be the rank odor of ball prep around the classes at this late date.

It was ALL ball prep and has been for weeks.

Deborah taught the first (supposedly the teaching) hour.
I taught the second experienced/social hour and instead I taught!

The dances we taught were:

The Fairy Ring  -  (32 J n circle) - Boyd
Knit the Pocky  -  (32 R 2)  - Bk 11
Deil Amang the Tailors  -  (32 R 3)  -  Bk 14

Trip to Gatlinburg  -  (32 J 3)  - S. Tang
A Summer Meeting  -  (32 S 3 set)  -Bk 48
The White Heather Jig  -  (40 J 4)  -  Cosh
The Robertson Rant  -  (80 S 4 sq)  -  Bk 39

The ball is on Saturday November 7, 2015 - in two days. I will not be there but I will be done with this program and then… and then… it will be déjà vu all over again -  Ball Prep for the next event.(John Drewry Night in Brooklyn). Being Drewry specific this program is not taken from the dance list but many of the dances have now been repeated 5-6 years in a row. Sigh.
