Greetings Master Octavio
Kudos for getting an early start organizing dance for GW.  My Lady (HL 
Isabeau Quiquandon) & I offer to lead the Thurday evening Ball and I will be 
happy to teach one or two classes as needed provided the classes actually 
make it into the schedule (my experience with GW scheduling has been less 
than stellar).  I plan to be there all week.  How soon will you want 
Ihon Vinson macFergus, OL

> Greetings to the fine Dancers of Ansteorra,
>>From the humble Octavio de Flores of Trimaris,
> I am writing to request your assistance and participation in Gulf Wars 
> dance
> activities.  One can argue whether I was in the right place or the wrong
> place, but I was there to volunteer when the autocrat was looking for
> someone to coordinate dance activities, so I am the dance coordinator for
> Gulf Wars this year.
> The main goal is to increase participation and interest, and hopefully to
> foster increased communication (teaching and learning) among the kingdoms.
> I would like to see the opportunity for leading dance pass each year to
> another kingdom, so we can all share in the challenge.
> One vision I have toward the goal is for each kingdom to host one night’s
> revel during the war.  My first thought is for the following schedule in 
> the
> evenings:
> Tuesday: Meridien-hosted revel
> Wednesday: Trimarian-hosted revel
> Thursday: Ansteorran-hosted revel
> Friday: no activity (the autocrat wants no conflicts with the Knowne World
> party)
> Saturday: End of the World revel (I will host, pulling favorite dances 
> from
> each of the kingdom-sponsored revels)
> The host kingdom will set the dance list, so favorite dances from each
> kingdom will be represented at the war.  The host may provide theme and
> refreshments, if they would like.
> I will do my best to make sure there is live music for all of the evening
> revels.  Mistress Marie of Trimaris will be the coordinator.  But like the
> dancing, I would like to involve musicians from the various kingdoms that
> have an interest.
> We also need teachers every day, Tuesday through Saturday morning.  I am
> going to start with the idea of one 90-minute class at 10:30 and one at 
> 1:30
> each day (maybe not Saturday afternoon).  If there is a greater desire, we
> can schedule more.
> I don’t know yet what level of cooperation we will have from the camp or
> autocrat staff.  I have asked that the dangerous carpet in the main hall 
> be
> addressed, and have requested a better location than the basketball court
> for classes.  I do not know if anything can be done in either instance.
> Please let me know if you are interested (or not), and if there is someone
> else that speaks for your kingdom regarding dance (please feel free to
> forward to anyone with an interest!).
> Yours in Service,
> Master Octavio de Flores
