Performer's and Dance Symposium III
Barony of Ponte Alto
February 19, 2005
King of Kings Lutheran Church, Fairfax, VA

The Atlantian Performer's Guild, the Atlantian Dance Academy, and the Barony of Ponte Alto present the third Performer's and Dance Symposium. The Symposium will consist of a day of classes on various performing arts. There will be a lunch and convocation in the middle of the day. Since Their Excellencies of Ponte Alto, in order to support the performing arts have graciously given the date usually reserved for their annual Baronial Birthday, there will be a Baronial Court before the evening feast. Their Excellencies of Ponte Alto will also be choosing new Baronial champions for Bardic and Arts & Sciences.

But wait! There's more. Following the feast and at the same site, we will be hosting an evening of performances given by the students and teachers at the Symposium. This performance will showcase the talents of Atlantia, and will be open to all who wish to attend. Following the performances, a ball will be held covering dances taught during the day. Harp and Drum (other musicians are welcome, too) will provide live music at the ball. If you wish to perform in the evening, please contact Mistress Anne of Carthew (anne AT ravenstreet.org) or sign up at the event.
