La Lirboulaire

Lilli Burelro - Feuillet

Marche du Prince d'Orange

La Lirboulaire or Lilli Burelro - Feuillet is a European Contredanse. It was published by Feuillet in 1706 in Recüeil de Contredanses (Feuillet), Paris. It was interpreted by Pat Shaw (website) in 1964 and published in Six Simple Country Dances. It is a proper Duple Minor dance. The minor set lasts 24 bars.

Feuillet describes his dances with diagrams rather than words and I am not prepared to reproduce them here. If you wish to examine the originals look here on page 70.

The tune is the same as Lilli Burlero in Playford.

The tune was published by Playford in 1690 titled Lilli Burlero. It was performed by Bare Necessities (Earl Gaddis, Mary Lea, Peter Barnes, and Jacqueline Schwab) on the album More Favorites of the Boston Centre. The music is used with permission from the Country Dance Society, Boston Centre, Inc.

The animation plays at 107 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance will often be slowed down so people can learn the moves more readily (no music plays during this slow set). Men are drawn as rectangles, women as ellipses. Each couple is drawn in its own color, however the border of each dancer indicates what role they currently play so the border color may change each time through the minor set.

The dance contains the following figures: hand turn (allemande), turn single, cast, lead, figure eight, cross go below, back to back (and probably others).
