      Estrella Court Dance Balls Info

      Greetings to all court dancers and musicians in the Outlands!

      Estrella War will host two Balls on Friday evening (a Grand Ball) and Sunday afternoon (a Caroso Ball).  Traditionally there has also been court dancing on Saturday evening after Grand Court.  There are plans for A&S Court Dance (European Dance)  classes prior to Friday’s Ball, Wednesday thru Friday at Estrella.

      The final dance set lists for these two Balls are posted at:  http://members.cox.net/lejon/sca.html.    Musicians are welcome to play for the balls.  All of the music for each of the Balls’ dances is available at the above link in PDF format.  On-site music practices will be posted as they are finalized and copies of the music will be brought to site as well.

       “Cheat Sheets” (a brief summary of the dance steps) for each of the dances for these two balls is available in two formats at: http://members.cox.net/lejon/sca.html#balls.  Copies of the cheat sheets will also be available at the Caroso Ball.

      Dancers are welcome at both the Friday night Grand Ball and the Sunday afternoon Caroso Ball at Estrella. The Caroso Ball is a dancers' choice ball, drawn from the list of dances published at the link above. There will be little or no teaching at the Ball, but anyone who knows a dance is encouraged to join in.  Spectators are also welcome.  For more information about the Caroso-style Ball, please see      http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/articles/caroso.html.

      Please forward this information to your local groups' discussion lists and chroniclers.

      In service to the dream,
      Jayne Barber
