Lise Dyckman was the first caller when we began dancing at Camp Pollock last October, so come out and show her what a successful dance she initiated! She’s been teaching and calling English country dance (and contra dance) for decades, in Philadelphia, New York City, California’s Bay Area, and beyond. She is known for her clear and concise calling, musicality, humor, interest in dance history and attention to welcoming community. Our house band, Quite Carried Away, is Dick Holdstock on octave mandolin and banjo, Susan Jones and Sandra Westfall on concertinas, Arlene Jamar on piano, Jane Kostka on whistle, Martin Lodahl on viola da gamba, and David Wright on fiddle and mandolin. Ask about their CD!
We’re just about to order the next batch of our wonderful green T-shirts! Samples will be on display at Sunday’s dance. Turn in and pay for your order by then if you’d like a shirt this year.
As usual, beginners are welcome and no partners are necessary. If you are bringing, or know of any, first-timers, please urge them to come at 1:30 for the introductory workshop that precedes the dance. All dancers are welcome at the workshop, but first-time attendees receive a coupon for half-off admission at their next dance!
