In honour of our Tudor Monarchs, we, the Canton of Monadh and the dancers of Ealdormere, present, for your pleasure, a day of most enjoyable dancing. Lessons will be taught by dance masters and musicans traveling far in this most cold winter, and will be followed by a splendid ball in the evening. We hope that many of you, the people of Ealdormere, will also be able to brave the weather and shake off the chill of winter to join us for music and dancing in this lusty pageant.

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a history club devoted to studying and re-creating the best aspects of life in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. It could be considered a historical re-enactment or living history organization. Unlike most of these, however, the SCA does not concentrate on a narrowly defined time period, let alone a specific war or other event. It also has no minimum standard of authenticity.
SCA activities are open to everyone and have more to do with re-creation (and recreation) than with re-enactment. The only requirement for attending an event is wearing an attempt at pre-17th century garment. This easily attainable requirement is one of the strengths of the Society. It makes it possible to participate on a small budget. It also means participants with all degrees of skill and spare time can find their niche. As long someone is interested in an aspect of Mediaeval or Renaissance life, there is a place for them in the SCA. Perhaps this is why some describe the SCA as a large group of people with interlocking hobbies.
