I've done a variety of dance over the years, but currently pretty much limit myself to SCA English Country Dance, and WBTS-era dances--Virginia reels and such.

I've been doing the SCA dancing (which also includes Italian Renaissance) for a bit over a year. The WBTS for about 3 years (had to learn it for my daughter's Blue-Gray Debutante Ball). Before that, I did ballroom--mostly waltz and foxtrot, and some Latin dances like the Tango. I've largely forgotten the Latin stuff, but the waltz is very much a part of WBTS dancing.

I used to do some Highland Tap, when I was a lot younger, but now I can't remember anything but the basic reel. (If you ask me in person, I can't remember anything at ALL) wink.gif

It's been around 13-14 years since I doned a pair of tap shoes. I remember that I was darn good at it though. Feel kind of stupid for giving it up now.

I did ballet, tap and jazz dance when I was younger (a lifetime ago). I did highland dance until I was 19 or 20.
Do Scottish Country Dancing too. In fact, I'm going to a St Andrew's Dance on Saturday. Dashing White Sergeant, Gay Gordons, Strip the Willow.... great fun biggrin.gif

That's cool. It's fun to hear about people who do other kinds of dancing. I still have a long life to live and I hope it is full of dancing. I'm doing a lot of ballet and now I'm in the Nutcracker, and I may start taking Jazz or modern. Busy weekend, I just got back from rehersal. I have to go, I go back to school in 13 and a half hours.

Contradancing is about it at present. I have done a little Scottish and English Contry dancing, long ago. I could probably remember Haymakers, if the other people knew it and could shove me along! My daughter has done some Pow Wow dancing. I love Morris dancing, but have never done it myself.

*grins* well, I'm reasonably well at the ancient japanese form of dancing with the sword (Kendo) but normal dancing just is not my thing.. if you want an example of my dancing adventures read the "Dippy Club" happy.gif

Others included weird stuff at an irish wedding etc.. I'd rather not talk about them *blush*

Thanks sounds interesting. How long have you been doing that? I'm studying Japan and it's arts in school. I've never done it though.

Well, you have different ways of Kendo, I studied under a Japanese sensei (the city in Germany where I come from is full of japanese ppl) for a long time (since I was 8)
It's not a dance, although the ritual movements you study have a certain elegance (and I love japanese swords)
My sensei was a kind man who would try and bring his students in touch with as many things of japanese culture as possible, we had tea-ceremony lessons, went to the house of japanese culture and got dressed up as ppl from the pre-recolutionary Era (pre-meiji).
He also invited us to restaurants when someone of us reached a higher level.
It was alot of fun, but I'm sad that Shigure-san died a year ago of cancer.

In Düsseldorf there is alot of japanese shops, bars, restaurants and even a japanese hotel. The japanese quarter is one of the nicer parts of Düsseldorf, it's a bit more exotic, there are the book stores and the antique's shops which I love the most.
I can't read japanese, I can only recognise a few kanji and sometimes understand a word or two.
