When: 22nd of April
Where: The Shire of Mynydd Seren in the Middle

What: A small workshop and ball with a more specific
focus than the average SCA event.

Evening: A feast of delicious 15thC food, followed by
a small ball composed entirely of dances from our
period: stately basse danses, slinky Italian balli,
rousing saltarelli, bransles from Arena and as much
more as we can fit! Various musical and theatrical
entertainments will be scattered throughout.
Whom: 15th dances are often fiendishly hard to
reconstruct, yet relatively easy to dance, so there
should be something for everyone interested in this
period, from raw beginners to seasoned saltarellists.
How Much: Site by donation. Dinner $5 (please book by
15th April for dinner).
