What Is Saltare?
Saltare is the dance guild that serves the Kingdom of Meridies, the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism covering the Southeastern United States. The purpose of the guild is to teach, promote, and organize Medieval and Renaissance dance for the kingdom, including both European dance styles and those of other cultures that had contact with Europe during these time periods.

We are also still looking for teachers, so if you are interested please email the Guild Steward.

If you enjoyed the Collegium and want to get more involved with Saltare, I encourage you to add your name to the membership roster. While it is certainly not necessary to be a guild member to dance, members will be able to vote on any changes to the guild in the future. Dance teachers and local dance leaders are highly encouraged to join, as the membership roster is the best way to know who is available to teach classes and lead revels in your area.
The 2011 Saltare Collegium

Thanks to all of you for helping to make this year’s Saltare Collegium a great success! In addition to all the great dancers, the teachers, musicians, and the Shire of Vulpine Reach made it a day to remember.

In order to facilitate communication within the Guild, I have added a new section to the Saltare website to maintain the membership roster. There has not been a current roster for quite some time, so I would like to start fresh and get everyone’s information. To register, click here.
Most news and updates will still be going out through the website, mailing list, and Facebook page. The Guild roster will be used mainly to contact people regarding classes and revels, and to coordinate voting on Guild positions and rule changes.
If you are the official dance leader for your group (European or Eastern), send me an email and I’ll add that information to the database. Also feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the new system.
Planning For The Future: Deputies
Posted July 19, 2010 by Lorenzo Petrucci
This year’s Saltare Collegium was a great success, but now is the time to start planning for the next one. To that end I have begun soliciting bids for the event. I have also enlisted the aid of some very talented people who have been generous enough to offer their services to the Guild.
First, I have given the position of Eastern Dance Deputy to Lady Cigan Oszinte from the Shire of Flintmarsh. She is very excited about the opportunity to get to know the members of the Eastern dance community and find new ways for Saltare to help them spread the joy of dance throughout the kingdom.
I have also appointed Lady Margavati from the Barony of South Downs as Collegium Deputy. She did an excellent job as event steward for this year’s Collegium, and expressed an interest in helping with the next one. As the Collegium is traditionally hosted by a different group each year, I thought it would be helpful to have someone for the next Collegium steward to consult with on the specific requirements of this event.
Email links for both of these ladies can be found on the Saltare website.
