[DRA] Dancemoot VIII

Come join the Shire of Harplestane and Gaita on the 29th of January 2011 for a day of dancing at the latest gathering of our Dance Moot. Dance classes will be held, with opportunities to practice in the evening at a ball. For the non-dancers, there will be a selection of period games to keep everyone entertained.

The site will be open from 11am to 11pm. Dance classes during the afternoon will cover both basics for beginners, and complex choreographies for the more advanced. A simple repast will be served around 6, to fortify us for further dancing into the evening.

Dance Moot will be held at the historic Priory Church in the village of North Queensferry, just north of Edinburgh. Their website is: http://www.priorychurch.com/index.html

There is an optional dance practice contingent on numbers on Friday night.

Please come and spend Sunday with us in a lovely castle just north of Edinburgh; Aberdour castle is a beautiful 13th century building with a tea shop and space to dance or fight out in the garden.  Trains are available from Edinburgh at regular intervals.

For more details or to make a reservation, see the website or contact the event steward, Lady Ylandra Brin Shiobhan by email at jgreensmith2006@googlemail.com.

The cost of the event will be £12 per person. Cheques should be made payable to “SCA Shire of Harpelstane”. No accommodation is provided, but Edinburgh has a multitude of B&Bs, hostels and hotels.
