People really enjoyed it at Bryn Gwlad's last Candlemas when we danced
during the feast: a remove, dancing, a remove, dancing, ...  We'll do
it again!

You can eat and socialize, then stretch your legs, socialize more, and
make room for the next remove while the cooks are preparing it.

Live musicians will play a number of popular and well-known dances.
Dances will be taught in classes during the day, 10 AM to 4 PM.
(Alas, we lack the time to teach during the feast.)  "Cheat sheet"
booklets will be on tables with reminders of the steps.

These are the planned dance sets.

First remove: Savoury Tosted Cheese

First dance set:
Hole in the Wall
Black Nag
Picking of Sticks

Second remove: Chawettys, Spinach Tart

Second dance set:
Maltese Bransle
Queen's Alman
Heralds in Love

Third remove: Fricassee of chicken, Cariota

Third dance set:
Petit Riens
Lebens Desconus
Black Alman
Whirlygig [according to the customs of Stargate]

I must note that the site has a smooth floor; someone did fall.
Please wear shoes with good traction.

For more information about dancing, courses, and the event, please see

Bryn Gwlad's Candlemas will be February 6, in Georgetown, Texas,
just north of Austin.
