SEE!  Hitler on Ice!

(oops, no, sorry, we couldn't book him in time.  We do, however, have 
the famed Knights in Tights, who are just as entertaining)

Do you love period dance and are eager for a chance to dance the 
night away?  Are you new to dance and want to give it a try?  Do you 
have 12th Night garb that didn't *quite* get finished in time for 
12th Night?  Then this is your big chance to realize your dreams: 
come to Crosston Shire's annual Dance Ball and show off your finery 
whilst learning and performing popular period dances.  A day of dance 
instruction led by our fabulous dance instructors will be followed by 
an evening of dance to the sweet tunes of our wonderful live 

If you would like to learn the dances beforehand, please feel free to 
attend the Crosston weekly dance practice on Wednesdays before the 
Ball.  The last one is TONIGHT (gasp) in Menlo Park!  For time and 
directions for this practice, please respond privately to this e-

don't fret!  There will be several easily identifiable experienced 
dance leaders at the ball who know the sets and will be happy to 
dance with you.  Just ask them!
