This looks like it will be a lot of fun - not sure what hall it will be in, but it will be indoor!

I've volunteered to help to coordinate the music for dancing, and if someone wants to make
a presentation with accompaniment, we could probably work that out.

We could also take a break between the dance sets to do some instrumental pieces,
like a set of ricercars or fantasias.  

If anyone is keen on playing, drop me a line!  Also, and I'm sure Crystal will ask, but people to help guide dancers through the dances would be a good thing.  I would suggest sticking to the more basic almans, italian, and ECDs for this since we will likely get a much more varied population than those that come to the dance ball =)  Plus, they're faster to teach!

Genevieve sent this to the Kingdom mailing list... one minor
correction, the Autocrat says it'll be in a different hall.

| On behalf of Their Majesties, Uther and Kara, King and Queen of the
| West, I am happy to announce that there will be a Masked Ball on the
| Saturday Night of March Crown. This Ball will be held indoors in the
| same building that we have had Arts displays in the last few years.
| Per Their Majesties wish, the theme for this Ball will be 16th C
| Venice. This being a Masked Ball there will be many opportunites to
| meet and dance with Mysterious Strangers, as well as the chance to
| disguise yourself and engage in your own form of intrigue. ;-)
| But, as with any event, this Ball will be what we make of
| it. Volunteers are needed to contribute 16th C refreshments, and
| performers are welcome and appreciated. Set up and take down
| volunteers are also being sought and will be greatly appreciated.
| If you would like to help, please contact me, Genevieve de Vendome at
| tlwhyte AT comcast DOT net.
| Watch this space for more Ball details as they become available!
