Frequently Asked Questions
Known World Dance
8th - 12th June 2001
As people ask us questions about KWDS III, we will add to this list of
frequently-asked questions. So far, we've been asked:
- I'm new to the SCA. What do I do?
- What should I bring to the event?
- Garb for each day, clean indoor shoes, sturdy outdoor shoes,
and a water bottle are all highly recommended.
Money for food and transportation is a very good idea.
More detailed suggestions here.
- Do I have to wear garb?
- Do I have to wear garb to classes?
- Yes, unless you're an outside
invited to teach at KWDS who doesn't normally attend SCA events.
- Do I have to wear garb
on Tuesday June 12?
- Yes, unless you're an honored guest
- The exception is non-SCA people: members of the
general public coming only for Tuesday may wear modern clothes.
- SCA members/newcomers are expected to wear garb every
day of KWDS III, including Tuesday.
- What the heck is happening Tuesday June 12?
- Tuesday June 12 is the final day of KWDS III. There will
be the usual day class periods, closed by a Caroso-style
Ball held during the final class period 4pm to 5:30pm.
The event closes at 5:30pm.
- Tuesday is also a Boston Early Music Festival
Concurrent Event, called For the Love of Dance,
and is open to the public.
Members of the public coming just for this one day are
not required to wear garb. See the
web page directed at
the public for more information.
Tuesday's classes and Caroso-style Ball will be open to
any member of the general public willing to spend the $10.
The activities this day will still be part of the SCA event,
but they are also a Concurrent Event of the
Boston Early Music Festival (BEMF). It will be something
like a "demo".
- KWDS III attendees are expected to remain in garb throughout
the day on Tuesday, the same as the rest of the event.
- Members of the public will not be required to wear garb.
- Will there be merchants?
Yes, contact the merchant
liason for more information.
