July 7th English country dance and picnic

It’s time for the annual potluck picnic that follows our Roseville dance! Both Camp Pollock and Roseville dancers are welcome at the picnic, so please join us at the Roseville dance this Sunday and then come along to the picnic.

Talent: Lise Dyckman calling to the music of Quite Carried Away
Date: Sunday, July 7, 2019
Time: 2:00-5:00 pm, with newcomer’s workshop at 1:30 pm
Location: Polish American Hall, 327 Main St, Roseville

Paul and Patty Larsen have once again invited us to their lovely home for a potluck picnic immediately after this Sunday’s dance! The Larsens will provide hamburgers and veggie burgers, and SCDS will provide the condiments, plates, and utensils. Please bring your favorite side dish (appetizer, salad, fruit, dessert, etc.), plus whatever you want to drink. Don’t forget your swimsuit and towel so you can enjoy their pool! Directions to the Larsen’s house will be provided at the dance.

Lise Dyckman has 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!

Please bring a snack to share at the dance. 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!

For more information, and lost and found, call Laura Leonelli, 916-549-7093, or email info@sactocds.org.
