Dancers neophyte, casual, and hardcore are invited to celebrate a
quarter-century of Calontir with a Ball in the evening, and dance
during the day.
The Ball pieces are mostly simple but all fun: Bransles, Italian,
and English Country dances are featured.
What will be taught during the day will depend on the teacher,
the students, guests, and requests. There will be an in-room teacher
present, but if you'd like to teach a dance, please bring sheet music
or a CD and show up in the classroom and see if others are interested.
Here's the loose plan:
10:30 a.m., later if necessitated by court: Random Newcomer Dances,
