For the last formal class of the year, we decided to fit in as much dancing as possible in two and a bit hours: a miniature ball. We didn't dress up, and we allowed space to repeat dances that we'd struggled with the first time through. The five of us took turns at requesting dances.Present: Anna de Wilde, Katherine of Glastonbury, Eleanor Hall, William de Cameron, Katherina Weyssin
