Please join us for a day and night full of dancing!

During the day, you will have the opportunity to learn dances from many talented teachers. The classes will cover a variety of styles, including Italian, English Country and Middle Eastern dance. As always, we will have an entire track aimed at beginners.

Then in the evening, put what you have learned into practice at the Grand Ball and Dessert Revel. Live music will be provided by the Jararvellir Music Guild and the Warwick Consort (guest musicians are welcome.)

Eithni ingen Talorgain, Esteemed Baroness of Jararvellir, does issue the following challenge to those good gentles interested in the art and practice of dance:

Half Hannikin: What’s the Other Half?

Half-Hannikin is one of the easiest dances from Playford’s 1st Edition… but it’s only half of Hannikin. The question is: what’s the other half? The dance has up and back, siding, and arming, so clearly the missing half is the chorus. Hence the challenge: Give us the Other Half of Hannikin.

For more information about this challenge, please download the rules (in PDF format) here.

For those who are of a more martial frame of mind, the Barony will be hosting a regional fighter practice during the day. For more information, click here.
