Good gentles of the Known World:
Her Excellency, Alyna Tir-y-Don, Lady of House Haakonstead, member of the Company of the Dragoon Guard, and Freescholar of the Academie d'Espee, by the Grace of God, TRMs Sinclair and Kari, Sovereign and Consort of Atlantia, and Their Excellencies Jean Claude de Calais and Alyna of the Ilex, Baron and Baroness of Tir-y-Don, encourages all gentles who are suitors of Terpsichore but debutantes at dance to join her in the dance pavilion for the Beginner’s Ball! This occasion of revelry will begin at the ninth hour in the evening of III Non. Sext., the 3rd day of the month which now honors Caesar Augustus. Each dance will build upon the steps learned from the previous one and the ball will progress from Bransles to English Country dances to a few basic Italian dances. Those who choose Euterpe, the muse of lyric song, as their mistress (i.e., minstrels) are most heartily welcome!
The Baroness will also offer to the populous some light refreshments. In addition, a limited number of cd's, which will have the music for the dances, and documents containing the choreography for each one will be available.
