Subject: RE: tune names - may I vent?
From above... '.Our callers are younger people (age 30 - 50) who love to dance but are not ballet dancers or other professionals. They did not grow up in villages or attend schools where all the children learn the local dances.'   Neither did the vast majority of callers I know ....most grew up in urban environments and these days one is very lucky to find any Primary School who teach dance let alone 'local' dances...no space in the curriculum! Most people come to it as adults...that is dancers AND callers AND musicians
