Personal Information

Delbert von Stra├čburg is an SCA persona currently residing in the Barony of Rowany (Sydney, NSW, Australia) in the Kingdom of Lochac. Previously I have resided in the Baronies of Stormhold (Melbourne, VIC); Southron Gaard (Christchurch, NZ); and Aneala (Perth, WA).

I do a lot of Renaissance Dance -- I spend time talking to a few of the on-line experts like Justin du Couer, Miklos, She'erah (previously known as Ellisif), Rosina del Bosco Chiaro (who doesn't have a home page), Greg Lindahl who happens also to have his own music and dance page as well as a big collection of images from Arbeau and Caroso, or Mustafa (Russell Almond) who has a web site of Early Dance music that is free for use in the SCA.

I have an on-line dance book, here. If you want a printed copy then you can order one from the Mainly Medieval web store. Mainly Medieval also have copies of the 5 CD set of dance music that I assembled some years ago (this is only available for shipping in Australia and New Zealand).
