Pennsic Class Reflections

So I ended up teaching three classes at Pennsic this year.

“Nail the Hey” was offered twice and seemed to go over pretty well. When there are brand new dancers in the mix and they can do various heys by the end of class without stumbling or falling behind, I’d say the class was successful.

My class about writing new English Country Dances went very well also. I had a small group of about 6 people, but it was a rather esoteric topic. We talked about the various steps and arrangements prevalent in ECD and learned a couple of the ones I wrote this year. At least one person said they were much like “normal” English Country Dances and fit right in.

I’ll definitely be writing more soon.
