Updated February 21, 2005


The Barony of Aquaterra invites all gentles to their second Day of Dance on February 26, A.S. XXXIX (2005)


We’ll enjoy an afternoon of instruction led by Master Trahaearn ap Ieuan, his students, and guest instructors; a light feast, and a festive ball to dance the night away!  For those whose feet grow weary there will be room for conversation, a game table, and a scribal table. Activities are also planned for children.


A light period French feast (including such delicacies as Chicken Cominy; Mushroom & Cheese Tarts; Smoked Salmon; Frumenty; and several Lenten dishes) and prepared under the direction of HE Fiamma the Unquenchable, is available to the first 50 gentles who make reservations with the autocrat (contact information below). To guarantee a seat, feast tickets must be paid in advance.  Off-board tables will be provided.


We are planning for live music for the Ball. Our dance list is tentatively:
