The Kingdom of Northshield used to have an annual Dance Seminar (
http://home.earthlink.net/~sbbush/nds/index.html) that was held in a
different Barony or Shire each year.  The teachers who taught dance there
never really thought of themselves as a kingdom-level guild, but they did
confer about issues, such as what belongs on the list of "Twelve dances all
SCAdians should know."

Mistress Rosanore of Redthorn ran Dance Seminar for many years.  She was
also the author (with Master Einar Lutemaker, now Mistress Elli) of the Rose
& Nefr dance manual.  The Jararvellir Music Guild provided the music for
dancing, both in the Rose & Nefr dance manual and at the annual Dance
Seminar gatherings.  More recently, they were also joined by the Warwick
Consort of Nordskogen.  Maestro Etienne de Clermont took over the helm of
the event from Mistress Rosanore about ... I'm not sure how many years ago,
six or seven?

Who ever knew I'd be in the SCA long enough to be telling other people about
the history of my kingdom of origin? ... Alas that I am far away.
