From The Page (December, 2011):
Excess, Lechery, Debauchery, Lasciviousness! These are just a few terms used by the writer Simeon Zuccollo in 1549 to describe the (necessary?) evils of dance. Join us for the Crosston Ball, where we plan to understand M. Zuccollo's complaints, have a discussion both in favor and against his opinions, and determine for ourselves which side we are on! A day of dance instruction led by our fabulous dance instructors will be followed by a potluck feast, culminating in a full evening of dance to live music on period instruments. You can also learn more about dance at Wednesday dance practice on in Crosston. Contact the autocrats for more information about dance practice.
