Dance performance in Coffee Concert on Saturday

Some of Ildhafn's dancers will be performing in the "Coffee Concert" at Somervell Presbyterian this Saturday morning.

The Capriol Renaissance Dancers (being in this case Katherina Weyssin, William de Cameron, Katherine of Glastonbury, Anna de Wilde and Caterine de Vantier, ably assisted by Ludwig von Regensburg and William de Wyke) will be performing a selection of renaissance dances, some of which you'll have seen at events, and some of which are brand
new (and 400 years old).

Dancing at Battlecry

On Friday night, William de Cameron and Katherina Weyssin attended the Battlecry Masked Ball. We performed Ginevra (almost by accident - we were warming up and entertaining ourselves), Contentezza d'Amore, and the Spagnoletta for a couple from Il Ballarino; then led some general dancing, before going outside to watch a display of fire-dancing.

The evening was a lot of fun. It was nice to see some people we know from other re-enactment groups, and great fun to compare variations of dances with people who do the same stuff a little differently to us.

Event Report: Canterbury Faire

With such a colossal event, I don't know where to start!

There was a great turn-out from Ildhafn this year for Canterbury Faire, with our numbers augmented by Don Gregory and Lady Edine Godin visiting from Innilgard.  The event kicked off with the appointment of Lord Oswyn Carolus and Mistress Isabella Maria to the positions of Baron and Baroness (respectively) of Southron Gaard.  This went smoothly, despite his soon-to-be excellency running around inappropriately dressed with distressingly little time till his appearance at Court.
