As Dr. Nick would say, "Good Afternoon, Everybody!"
Thanks to Master Gregory, we have kicked-off a new mailing list for the
Atlantian Dance Symposium III Staff. The address for postings to this list
is ads3 at pbm.com. I expect traffic to be fairly low-volume, but I wanted
there to be a single condiut for information, just so everybody is on the
same page as things begin to play out.
I want to start this off by thanking everyone who has volunteered to help us
coordinate this upcoming event, and to provide y'all a listing of the other
staff members so you'll know who to go to (or who to send people to) when
things come up. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We will be adding a Crash Space Coordinator sometime in the next month -- a
Dun Carraiger who will pair up empty beds with folks who would prefer to
avoid staying in a hotel. We may also tap someone to be in charge of
decorations for the site.
The event flyer information is nearly finalized... I received the signed
contract for the site on Wednesday, and will be faxed the contract for our
hotel tomorrow. (We got a phenominal rate for the hotel!) Once the ink
dries on the last contract, I'll complete the event flyer and fire it off to
Gwen for the January =Acorn=. I will cut/paste a text-only copy of the
flyer as it stands now.
Our website is up, thanks to Lord Bryan. Hopefully, I'll get him some
detailed info so we can replace our holding page soon. <grin> The URL is
Our site is the Southern Community Center in Lusby, MD. It's part of the
Calvert County Parks & Recs department, and is a public facility. They have
three VERY large dance/recital rooms, two meeting rooms, and an assortment
of individual offices, and shares their parking lot with the local library.
It is important to note that while we have nearly all of the site, we do NOT
have the entire site. We have the three VERY large dance/recital rooms, but
we have neither of the meeting rooms. One of the meeting rooms is used for
a regularly-scheduled Saturday afternoon BINGO session by the local Seniors,
and has been reserved for their use. If the Seniors cancel or are a
no-show, we can use it. The other meeting room is currently unreserved. If
the P&R department do not get a request for the other room by the day of our
event, we can have it too.
The three dance rooms are adjacent to one another, with fold-away room
dividers splitting them up. We will be using all three rooms during the day
for our three tracks of classes, and will use two of the three for our Ball
that evening. If we need the third room for the Ball, we can get it, but it
will increase our site cost by 50%.
The largest of the three rooms includes a seperate stage area, which will be
used by our Band during the ball. I have attended dances there in the past
and while the acoustics aren't phenominal, they certainly aren't that bad.
Here's a breakdown of the schedule we're currently planning to:
10am - Site opens to staff (set up, decorating, etc)
11am - Site opens to public
12noon - Classes begin (three, 5 hour tracks)
5pm - Classes end
7pm - Ball begins
10:30pm - Ball ends
11pm - Site closes (cleanup begins)
11:30pm - Staff off-site
There *may* be a Baronial court, so things may juggle a bit. There is NO
on-site feast planned, but there are plenty of nearby places to eat
within a 10 minute radius.
The three biggest tasks right now as I see them are:
1 - Lining up our classes. Constanza and Bambi are working on that. We
will also touch base with some OOK folks who have expressed interest in
coming to teach.
2 - Ironing out the details for the Grand Ball. Gregory is in charge of the
dancing, and Anne has the musicians. They'll work on a set list, order of
dance, and the competitions.
3 - Publicity. Our event is opposite Ymir, and though we will draw from a
different audience, we will nonetheless need to make sure we don't get
ignored in the Kingdom's rush to it's first big fighting event of the new
year. Also, since the site prohibits us from taking money, we need to
*really* push folks to pre-register. Word of mouth is good, force-feeding
info to our local Chroniclers is better still. If anyone needs/wants a
softcopy of the event flyer, let me know, or check the website where I'm
certain we'll post one for downloading. :)
Here's the event flyer. Thank you all, and welcome aboard!

February 9th - Atlantian Dance Symposium III
Barony of Dun Carraig, Lusby, MD
Come join the Barony of Dun Carraig and the Atlantian Dance Academie as we
host the Third Atlantian Dance Symposium, to be held on February 9th in
Lusby, MD. This Symposium will feature more instruction than ever before
offered - a planned 15 hours! There will be something for every level of
dancer, from the very beginner to the very experienced. And when the
classes end, the day will culminate with a Grand Ball!
Two complete tracks of instruction in Western dances from England, France
and Italy will be offered, including material never before taught in
Atlantia. And if that's not enough, this winter's Symposium will also
feature a track of Middle Eastern dance! Following that, what better way to
cap-off a day of learning new dances than by having a chance to strut your
stuff? In a continuance of Atlantia's newest tradition, the Dance Academie
and Ponte Alto's Harp and Drum Corp are pleased to announce that a Grand
Ball will be held in the evening until the site closes.
