From The Page (January, 2017):

Gentlefolk, join us for the Crosston Ball. Kick up your heels to our lovely Renaissance music and enjoy a potluck picnic supper in the evening. The Ball is at a new site in Downtown San Jose. Thrillingly, classes are 2 pm to 5 pm featuring English Country Dance, Burgundian bassedanse, Italian 15th c & 16th c balli, plus Bransles & Pavans for a variety of dance styles. If you are interested in playing with the Crosston band, please contact the autocrat. Volunteers gratefully accepted! We will pause for an informal potluck dinner after classes. The site is dry. The ball itself will be 6-10 PM. The ball features Renaissance social dancing, with a theme of “The Wild Hunt”. Enjoy the lively English country dances much loved by Queen Elizabeth I. Show your prowess with Italian balli & cascarde. Brush up your knowledge of the bassedances of Burgundy.
