Friday Dance – 7-9:30pm
Callers: Julliette Webb and Luanne Stiles
Music: Nora Garver, Julia Weatherford and Karen Gaughan
Saturday Workshop: Dance Communication – 2:30-4:30 pm
Explore how to be flexible, creative, and present in your approach to English Country Dance as we play with such things as helping, learning, communicating, adjusting on the fly to mistakes – and more.
We will look at it from two perspectives: if you are a caller, what can you do to
support dancers and the community in improving these skills; as a dancer, how you can refine these skills.
Saturday Dance Party: 7-10PM
with Brooke Friendly

This is an amazing opportunity for those of us on the east coast.
