Greetings, Fair Atlantia!

It is both my privlidge and my honor to publish herein the dance list for 
the Atlantian Grand Ball to be held at Kingdom Twelfth Night!

The evening's festivities will begin after Feast with a special 
presentation, and the Grand Ball will follow immediately after the 
presentation.  The Ball will commence with a new dance choreographed by 
L'Academie Atlantienne de la Danse to the music of Pavana la Cornetta.  The 
Pavanne will be done twice: with the first being the official unveiling in 
honor of Galmr and Aryanna, and the second for any Gentles who care to join

Beyond the dances listed above, there will also be several dance 
"diversions" offered throughout the evening for the enjoyment of all, 
regardless of prior dance experience.  Also, should we exhaust this list 
during the evening, requests for specific dances will be entertained!

Alas, site space constraints do not permit us to confirm at this time 
whether or not we will have the opportunity to offer dance instruction 
earlier that day.  Instructions for most of the dances listed above can be 
found by following the appropriate link on the Grand Ball webpage:

Questions specifically related to the Grand Ball may be forwarded to myself, 
Lord Edvard Gayer.  General information about L'Academie Atlantienne de la
