Are you coming to the Bal d'Argent on 1st August?
Musicians wanted to play for day classes and/or the Ball.
Fantastic – email me!
Inexperienced? – Fantastic – this is a chance to come and give it a go…between the different tunes there are parts suitable for beginners up. I can send sheet music for you to practice in advance, we'll have a rehearsal on the day and I'll try to arrange one before the day as well, if possible and necessary. Email me!
Not sure if your instrument will work with others?
Send me an email!
Like to play, but don't want to be stuck playing all night as you like to dance too?
If different instruments play different dances, that's a *good* thing – it means the music doesn't always sound the same. Email me!
Want to volunteer? Other questions?

What is happening at the Ball
During the day there will be dance workshops. A light lunch will be served during the day.
A meeting of the members of the guild is held to discuss issues relevant to the guild. They may also discuss new candidates for membership who are not present to be tested. Each year, a new guild secretary is elected, and competition dances for next year's ball are decided on.
In the evening there will be the Ball itself. There will be a break in the dancing, for the light supper, new members of the guild are welcomed and the competition prizes are awarded.
