Playford_Dodson_KingSpecial Program:  This special English XTRA workshop is a fast-paced afternoon for experienced English country dancers, which will NOT include an introductory lesson before the dance. Caller Alisa Dodson, who is this year’s Dancing Mistress for the BACDS Playford Ball, will review most of the dances in the upcoming Ball program.  To experience the lengthy program with extra work on the more challenging dances, the pace of the afternoon will be more lively than usual.  This is not a dance for beginners!  (Please bring your first-timer friends to the next regular dance on April 1st).  Whether or not you intend to go to the Playford Ball, this Sunday’s dance is a wonderful opportunity to learn or review many dances in one afternoon.

Special Music:  We are honored to have Rebecca King on piano and Maggie Moore on violin for this special dance.

Special Price and Location:  Admission to this workshop is $12 for adults. Please note that the workshop will be held at the YLI Clubhouse (1400 – 27th St, Sacramento), not at our usual location. We will begin dancing promptly at 2:00 pm. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to change shoes and check in so that we can start the program on time. It’s always nice when people bring a snack to share!

Parking: Please take special care to check parking signs, or you may find yourself with a hefty ticket. In general, the streets to the south and west of the hall have unrestricted parking; whereas the streets to the north and east have meters and/or time limits that are operative on Sundays. Look carefully for signs, and plan to walk a block or two.
