For those of you going to Pennsic, there are many
dance classes available and many balls, including
dancing every night under the Dance Pavillion. 

This year they have an especially impressive variety
of dance classes, and as someone who has been to
Pennsic 8 out of the past 10 years I am hard to
impress. This is only a partial list as the full list
would be several pages long, but for more information
check out the Pennsic class schedule at

you) and Katherine Mercer.
