Update on the dance in Japan:
First of all, many thanks to everyone (Linsay, Lisa, Amy, Greg, Alan, Chip, Pam, John
(yes, john, I believe you were the caller when Yukie and I met), David and anyone else, if
I missed anyone) for the replies, which I have read with interest. The suggestions were
extremely helpful...and I have only a moment for a very quick and dirty update on how it
We did a practice dance with some of the staff of the festival a week ago monday, and it
went very well. They were having a blast, and I learned a lot about calling. People seemed
to have no problem understanding calls in english (if I kept them simple), and yukie and I
had no real problems calling...
We were worried that we weren't going to have any musicians, when this week the
members on a session group stepped up. We went to their session last night and they were
great, and they have sets all picked out, so that piece is going well (except I may not
have a microphone...hmmm)
I appreciate the suggestions on dances to call, and we have a nice long list of
possibles that we are going to have at our disposal depending on how many kids, how
quickly people learn, how much space etc. So I feel like we are ready on that front. Right
now it looks like we are going to go with some dances from Heinrick Fischle's
website...I don't recall the name, but we are still looking the list over.
ANyhow, I have to scoot, but I will update later, and comment more specifically to what
people said. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH for the SUGGESTIONS!!!!!!!!! I am sooooo excited about
this I am bursting at the seams...
nothing rhymes with nostril...
