Dear Fellow Dance Enthusiasts,
As one of the dance coordinators for the Royal University of the Midrealm at
the Masque of Courtly Love (Saturday, Feb. 20, Canton, Ohio), I wanted to
personally invite you and yours to enjoy some excellent dancing at this
event. I had a feeling you might know some gentles who would be interested,
and there will be an entire track of period dance classes and an evening
Masked Ball after feast featuring live musicians. Here's an up-to-date
schedule of the activities to expect:

Debbage, OGR): Black Almain, Earl of Essex Measure, Horses Bransle, Madame
Sosilla’s Almain, Maltese Bransle, and Official Bransle. Dances taught will
be performed in the evening ball. Beginning dancers encouraged and advanced
16th Century Italian Dance (2-3 PM, Instructor: Mistress Alina of Foxwood):

Dances taught will be performed in the evening ball. Beginning dancers

15th Century Italian Dance (3-4 PM, Instructor: Master Philip White):

dancers welcome. You do not need to have attended the earlier classes in
order to participate in this class.
The Masked Ball will follow feast, which begins at 6 PM. If you don't
already have a mask to bring, there will be a mask making workshop from 12-2
PM on site.
Please forward this information to any gentles interested in the art of
dancing, or consider printing out this e-mail and bringing it to your
practices to share with your dancers. I hope to see many diverse groups from
far and wide represented at the dancing activities at RUM! For more
