These all look fine to me!
> October Crown - Gracca Amoroso
This gives me a little pause. In the past, we've always
done dances that can be taught to a more or less completely
inexperienced dancer in 10-15 minutes (except for the dances
at Kingdom A&S). Gracca is a little outside that category.
On the other hand, just because that's been our policy in
the past doesn't mean that we can't change it... I think
I'd pick an easier dance, though, maybe Villanella or
Contrapasso if you're looking for a 16th c. Italian dance.
