Are your augurs or astrologers predicting something dire in early November? Come and dance away your cares at Storvik's second Song and Dance. We will alternate blocks of performance with sessions of dance instruction, ending the day with a Grand Ball and a bardic circle.
Song: Master Ruaidhri an Cu will be the master of ceremonies for our scheduled performances. Slots are first-come, first-served. Reserve up to 15 minutes for your songs, skits, monologues, poetry, stories, interpretive dance, and more! (No fire acts, please.) Contact ruaidhriancu[at]gmail.com to claim a spot.

From the north: Best route to I-95 S. After exit 29, stay in the second lane from the right. The highway splits; stay right. Then, when a lane opens to the left, get into it. Take the ramp around, merge back onto I-95, and immediately take Exit 25 to US-1 S, College Park. Continue from *, below.
From the south: Take either side of the DC Beltway to Exit 25 for US-1. Take US-1 S to College Park. Continue from *, below.
*Final approach: Take US-1 S past the main entrance to University of Maryland. Go through the light at Rossborough Lane and through the light for the pedestrian crosswalk. At the next light, College Ave, turn left. (The Bagel Place, with a green awning, and a Target will be on the left; a Potbelly Sandwich shop will be on the right.) Go through the first stop sign; you will see St Andrew's on your left. At the second stop sign, turn left onto Princeton Ave. Turn left again into the St Andrew's parking lot; the second left, into a gravel field, is also St. Andrew's parking. There is some parking facing Princeton Ave; there is more if you continue to drive past the church. If that all fills up, there is pay parking under the Target.
The entrance to the church hall is on your left when you first turn into the parking - it's a set of black metal stairs leading up to a large brown wooden door; look for SCA signage.
