My sister works at the UCLA main research library and sent me this today:

Historical Ballroom Dances in the Rotunda Cervantes' Don Quixote 400th Anniversary Ball Saturday, April 16 8 p.m. to midnight In celebration of the great Spanish novel which was first published in 1605, this ball will feature instruction in dances from the late Renaissance periods and early Baroque periods, including the "Spagnoletta." All UCLA faculty, students, and staff, as well as the public are welcome. Costume, formal, or semi-formal attire; instruction will be included. No dance experience or partner necessary; admission is free.
I am so completely and utterly jealous. They have these historical balls about three times a year and they always have a different theme. What fun it would be to go!
