[Callers] Does this dance exist?

2017-10-07 Thread QuiAnn2 via Callers
Hi, all! I recently wrote this dance and would like to know if it’s already out there somewhere and being called by people. As always, your feedback is appreciated. I test called it in September and it went well. Seth Tepfer called it in River Falls and it went well, though he is going to try

[Callers] Mad Orbin, a new dance

2016-08-19 Thread QuiAnn2 via Callers
Hi, all! Thanks to all those who responded about this dance. Both Bob Isaacs and Chris Page don’t recognize the dance as already written so I think we’re good to go. Would love to hear how it goes if you decide to call it. The title is not a typo. The 2nd word is a play on words as a

[Callers] Fewer than 6 dancers - Ideas?

2016-10-04 Thread QuiAnn2 via Callers
I recently called at a contra dance where we had exactly 6 dancers for almost the entire evening (one joined us later but only occasionally danced). This was unexpected as they usually have attendance in the 12-20 range. I was able to piece together a night of mixers, triplets, and oddball

Thanks to everyone for your great responses! I’ve taken notes, looked up dances, watched videos, and will be ready (without panic) for the next dance where we have very few dancers. Kalia, I love Pride of Dingle and did call it that night as a 7-person dance. I had Dingle skip the last

I’ve also written a dance with this down the hall figure in it. I like to call it early in the evening since it’s very connected and has “rest” time for each couple. I haven’t run it through the Shared Weight gauntlet to see if anyone else has written it. Please let me know if it’s already out

Hi, Saw this dance on-line (it’s the video that is on the GoFundMe page for the Dayton, VA dance) and I like the dance. Does anyone know the title, author and author's choreography of the dance? I can work out the choreography but would like to see how the author describes the B1 and B2 of

Hi, all, I’m calling the contra dances in Montpelier, VT, and in Cambridge, MA next weekend. I’m hoping to get some insight from people who have danced there or called there about the dance crowd and how they are as a community in helping each other, how many beginners usually come, are they

[Callers] New dance? - Dolphin hey with neighbors

2018-10-02 Thread QuiAnn2 via Callers
I wanted to have a dance where dancers did the dolphin hey figure with a neighbor rather than with a partner so that knowledge could be transferred from one person to another. I wrote this dance with that purpose. This dance borrows much from Seth Tepfer’s “Dolphin Yay!” dance and Andrea

Hi, Luke (and others)! Jeremy Korr called this on Saturday night and I danced it as a Lady/Raven with a partner who was not a switcher so I can comment on it as a Lady dancer but not from the Gents/Larks perspective. I generally liked the dance. The flow was good and it was nice to have
