St. Patrick's Day, explaining choices 7, 8, and 12. "Sol Assembled" was a set-up for "Ani's Waltz," which had some serious issues the week before. The theory was that dancing a Sicilian Circle would get dancers used to not always orienting themselves against walls. "Hunsdon House" was a set-up for "Mary K". I tried not teaching all of "Hunsdon House" by not having both heads and sides walk through every piece twice. It created some bafflement at the beginning -- I needed to be clearer that I wasn't teaching the entire dance, but would be prompting the entire dance.
