 The  five-hour workshop with Artemis takes place in Bangor, ME on Saturday, September 2 between 9 AM and 3 PM with an hour off for lunch.  Registration will begin at 8 AM. 

The workshop will include floor, zill and veil work. Artemis suggests bringing either leg warmers or something to kneel on if you are not used to floor work. If you do not have zills, there will be both loaners and some for sale available.

There will be vendors! And I will make sure that there 
is ample browsing time available.


There will be an evening show,
included in the cost of the workshop, featuring Artemis and The Desert Dancers as well as guests. The show is scheduled for 7 PM Saturday night. Anyone participating in the workshop is also invited to bring a costume and dance! Please let me know when you register if you wish to dance, how long a piece, some general idea 
(3-5 minutes; veil, sword, etc.) and what piece of music you want to use
. Those paying by August 11 will recieve a discounted price of $65 for the workshop/show. Tickets will also be available at the door for $75. 
Tickets for just the show can be purchased by the general public for $10.

Local accomodations: at this point the best two rates are 
$59.95 at the Odlin Rd. Holiday Inn (207 947-0101) and 
$62 at the Bangor Motor Inn at the Mall (207 947-0355). 
Since this is Labor Day weekend, I suggest calling soon and mentioning The Desert Dancers. If you let me know where you are staying, Iíll get a map with directions to the workshop to you.
