  • Courtly Dance Classes

    I will be holding Courtly dance classes with the aid of Master Jeffery beginning on Tui's, the 11th day of this moon at 9 LB in the Outer Bailey Theatre. These sessions will be held every Suns at 4 LB and every Tuis at 9 LB with the last class being held on the 25th day of this moon in preparation for the upcoming Cotillion Ball. We will be covering the Annello Waltz, the Brisk Wind, and the Blooming Rose provided time permits and participants are willing.

    On behalf of the Unity,
    You need power only when you want to do something harmful, otherwise love is enough to get everything done. ~~Charlie Chaplin~~

      Dancing, if you please!
      Sashay gently
      Bend the knee

      Always let a noble lead
      Drop their trousers
      Lift their skirt

      Now's the time to
      show your worth!
      Pucker the lips
      Hold your breath

      Sell you dignity
      to be their guest

        Dancing, if you please!
        Sashay spiritedly,
        Bend your knees!

        Always let your heart lead;
        Keep your trousers,
        Don your skirt,
        That speaks more volume of your worth!

        Rather, curve the lips,
        Happily expel your breath;
        Depart only from your sorrows,
        Waltz 'til there be none left.

        Keep your dignity, I pray you,
        Learn the culture if you choose;
        You will be loved regardless
        Of whether you attend or refuse.

          Is it time for you to dance?
          Or for Prime Ministers to Prance?
          And constituencies to do a jig
          Of their own choosing
          Free to be

          And Courtliness forgotten soon
          with regimental marching tunes
          With noses high and pinkies too
          All left behind for Summer's noon

          No whining "I gave no leave!"
          Or "Use my title, perfectly!"
          But oscillating wild and free
          To each their own: Equality!

          Let nobles petty Learn your dance
          And servile minions wait their chance
          To prove themselves obediently
          In your Cotillions formally

          But take your snobs across the Bridge
          And leave us now! And let us live
          To dance the dances that WE choose
          And thrust our hips obscenely too

            The first dance class begins tonight with the Annello Waltz. Bring a partner if you can, but please feel free to come alone too and educate yourselves in this beautiful form of movement.

            Politics can be left at the door. This is a time to celebrate artistry and education.

              Tonight's class on the Brisk Wind has been moved to 9 late bells for those interested in attending. It will still be held in the Outer Bailey Theatre. (OOC: It's Easter and we figure folks will be doing family stuff)

                          Tonight's class will be at 11 late bells and will cover the dance 'The Galliard of the Snowflakes'. This is the last session before the Ball on Frey's where you'll have the opportunity to show off the steps you've learned!
