Winter.  A time to enjoy the finer
things in life within the cosy walls of a hall and among warm
friends.   On this day we shall choose our newest
Defender of Arts & Sciences, learn about the skilled and
graceful art of dance, enjoy each other’s talents in a
potluck feast and rounding out the day with a tavern and even
more dance.

THE WOLF & DRUM
TAVERN
NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL PERMITTED as a
privately-run tavern, with their own liquor licence, will be

AN EVENING BALL
Now
that you are educated in the wonderful ways of the dancer,
it’s time to put those newly acquired skills to work. 
As preparations for the evening ball begin, dancers wishing
to partake will be given a card with a number on it. This can
be then pinned or displayed on their person.  Ladies
will receive even numbers and Lords will receive odd
numbers. 

Beginning at 7:30pm, there will be a
number of pre-determined dance sets that will be
completed.  In each set, one of the dances will be a
mystery dance and numbers will be called at random.  The
person who has that number will then come onto the dance area
and will be taught a dance.  The other dances can be for
anyone who wants to dance.

Set 1:  7:30 to 8:00pm
Set 2:  8:15 to 8:45pm
