Has it really been a week? I’m such a slacker. I suppose at least a small post is in order.
For those who might be interested, I will be attending both Winter Collegium and Midwinter Arts & Sciences in February.
At Winter Collegium, I’ll be teaching a class on dance interpretation. I have different music arrangements for some dances commonly done in Meridies, and we’ll be discussing how the arrangement of the music affects your performance of the dance. The big example will be Petite Riens, which is commonly danced to a fast-paced musical arrangement that often turns the dance into a giant game of chicken. We’ll see how dancers respond when I hit them with a really slow musical arrangement.
At Midwinter A&S, Fjorleif and I will be entering Contrapasso in the performing arts category. And as I’m typing this, I’m reminded that I need to send in my documentation so the judges have time to review it in advance.
Gulf Wars approaches, and we will be attending. As far as I know, I’m not in charge of anything this year, and we’re not playing camp organizers, so we will get to relax and play all week.
In unrelated (WoW) news, Grimbor reached level 30 during another plunge into Gnomeregan, and he learned the Feign Death skill. I'm looking forward to trying it out. Gullveig also got some play time in the last week and reached level 24.
