Report from the meeting of the substudy group on
Round dances - 19th century derived couple dances

The Sub-Study Group on Round dances - 19th century derived couple dances 
had its second meeting in Vilnius 2 - 5 October 2003. The meeting was 
hosted by Dalia Urbanaviciene at the Council for Protection of Ethnic 
Culture. She also provided us with an exciting social program. The 
secretary of the Sub-Study Group, Egil Bakka, chaired the meeting. 
Participants were: Dalia Urbanaviciene, Daniela Stavelova, Mats Nilsson, 
Gediminas Karoblis, Laszlo Felföldi, Dorota Gremlicova, Theresa Buckland 
and Egil Bakka. There were greetings and apologies for absence from 
several members who could not participate. Several students and staff 
from the Council assisted in the work and took care of practical tasks.

All participants had prepared various kinds of material for the meeting, 
and we continued to work along the four tracks established in our first 
meeting.

1. Analysis and classification of Round dance movement patterns
including musical parameters.
2. Dancing masters / dance teachers and their material on Round dances
3. The political and ideological and socio-cultural discourse on Round
dances
4. Organised contexts of Round dances

The work started with a general discussion on organisation and priority. 
The group agreed to give priority to the production of a publication 
fairly soon. We judged it would be most realistic to achieve a 
publication on track 3, and agreed to work most intensively here. We 
still want to keep up work on the other tracks, and during the meeting 
there was a fair amount of work done even on track 1 and 2, but less on 
track 4.

The group plans it next meeting 7. - 9. May with 11 -13 June as 
alternative. The place has not been decided yet.
