Learn the lively and exciting dances of the medieval and renaissance time periods while you dine, drink, and dance the night away! The Medieval Fair Department within the University of Oklahoma Outreach announces the 3rd annual Medieval Midwinter Ball will be held January 16th, 2016. This year’s Ball will be at the elegant Sam Noble Museum to celebrate the exhibit “First Folio! the book that gave us Shakespeare.” The exhibit will be open for viewing during the ball. A sumptuous buffet will be provided by University Catering for your feasting pleasure. The Unpronounceable Irish Band led by Bruce Cannon will surround you with music as you learn the dances from the renowned Jeremy Caviness and his Elite Feet Dancers. Neither partner nor experience needed. Medieval and renaissance costumes are always fun but optional (no weapons, costume or otherwise, allowed). Tickets are limited. $40 in advance or $45 at the door - only if any tickets remain.
