Greetings to all gentle lords and ladies of this list:

Pray read these announcements of yet two more fine balls to be held 
during Pennsic, and kindly forward them to any to any lists and 
gentles you feel might be interested.

In service,

Publicist, European Dance, Pennsic XXXVII

notice of The Beginner's Ball:

Her Excellency, Alyna Tir-y-Don, Lady of House Haakonstead, member of 
the Company of the Dragoon Guard, and Freescholar of the Academie 
d'Espee, by the Grace of God, TRMs Sinclair and Kari, Sovereign and 
Consort of Atlantia, and Their Excellencies Jean Claude de Calais and 
Alyna of the Ilex, Baron and Baroness of Tir-y-Don, encourages all 
gentles who are suitors of Terpsichore but debutantes at dance to 
join her in the dance pavilion for the Beginner's Ball!  This 
occasion of revelry will begin at the ninth hour in the evening of 
III Non. Sext., the 3rd day of the month which now honors Caesar 
Augustus.  Each dance will build upon the steps learned from the 
previous one and the ball will progress from Bransles to English 
Country dances to a few basic Italian dances.  Those who choose 
Euterpe, the muse of lyric song, as their mistress (i.e., minstrels) 
are most heartily welcome!

The Baroness will also offer to the populous some light 
refreshments.  In addition, a limited number of cd's, which will have 
the music for the dances, and documents containing the choreography 
for each one will be available.

notice of The Blue Feather Ball:

Joshua the Imperfekt, host, with Clan Blue Feather, wishes all gentles
of the Known World to hear that the 19th Annual Clan Blue Feather Ball
& Fashion Cotillion will be held on Tuesday evening, August 5, at 9:00
p.m. in the Dance Tent at the Pennsic War.  Please join them for
dancing, fun, food, friends and frivolity, as well as prizes for the
most notable garb.  Remember, their motto is, "Wear what makes you
look your best, but not necessarily your best garb!"  A panel of
roving mystery judges will be on the lookout for both fun and serious
garb, so be sure to arrive early to give all plenty of time to admire
your handiwork, and also to enjoy an evening of dancing.  Following
the Ball, Camp Urso will host a post-revel just down the block.
