since Vard has led me (metaphorically) onto the floor, I guess it behooves 
me to introduce myself.....

In modern life, I am a mother of two and part time file clerk.  I live on 
the NC coast, about an hour east of New Bern.  In the SCA, I guess a bit of 

I got into SCA dance about the same time I got into the SCA, around 1988 in 
the Barony of NorthWoods (Lansing, MI).  In 1992, I moved to the Shire of 
Cathanar, on the NC coast, and dance got put on a back burner due to both 
my mundane life and the need to concentrate on other areas of the SCA (like 
holding offices so we could still have a group....)  In the past couple of 
years, I have participated in Tryon Palace's Colonial Dance Assemblies 
(which feature a good number of English Country dances that I have danced 
in SCA) and this year have joined the Craven Historical Dancers, who also 
focus on the colonial period

It looks like finally my life has gotten to the point where I can 
concentrate on SCA dance again.

I have to admit, though I have danced a LOT in the Midrealm, and done a 
fair amount of dancing since, and even taught SCA dance a bit, that I am 
not very familiar with SCA dance *in Atlantia*.  I don't know what dances 
are common/familiar, nor what variations you may have on ones I'm used 
to.  So I'm looking forward to travelling a bit and maybe enticing somone 
to come to the local group and hold a dance workshop for the individuals I 
can round up.

I have a question/possibility to pose:  I was hoping to be able to arrange 
dancing at the hotel after University if there was interest, but I don't 
think we can get the room I had in mind without a charge.  If there IS a 
lot of interest, I will talk to the autocrat about whether we might be able 
to get the conference room or another site inexpensively.

Finally, I do have one more question....the Academie website mentions a CD 
of dance music.  Where can I lay hands on one, and for how much?  Or if I 
contribute a blank disk, can I get a copy?  I will be at University, if it 
would be possible to make a transfer there.

In service, enjoying myself immensly,

Lady Kat
