I forgot to mention that if you see that an appropriate dance is missing,
please let me know.  Lord Henry already alerted me to the omission of Petite
Reinse, I've added it to the second set.  I know that the fifth set has more
challenging dances. Last year the floor had really thinned out by then and
mostly the regulars were left. I think with so many "ringers" we can get
through some tougher dances later at night.

What:         Beginners' Ball

Where:        Pennsic in the European Dance Tent

When:         Sunday, August 8 from 9 pm to 2 am


The Beginners Ball is your opportunity to explore the joys of dance
available to all.  Please join us at Pennsic on Sunday August 2 at 9 pm, for
a ball that is open to all levels of dancers (partners and fancy garb not
necessary).  We will dance a lively assortment of dances from Bransles to
English Country to dances from the Inns of Court to some easy Italian
dances.  Is all this meaningless to you? Don't worry as this is a 'teaching'
ball. Beginners more than welcome.  Music will be provided by an open band
assembled at Pennsic.  We welcome musicians to join us in our celebration.
In addition, there will be light refreshments available.  The refreshments
are sponsored in part by Storvik.
