Newitt_QuiteCarriedAway

David Newitt teaches and plays music for regular Scottish and English dances and calls contras and the occasional square dance by night, while doing research in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at UCSF by day. One of the most accomplished country dance teachers in the Bay Area, David is known for his mastery of dance geography and his ability to make complicated dances seem simple.

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!

Did you enjoy a particular dance and want it repeated in a future program? During the dance, step over the whiteboard that lists the dances we’re doing and place a checkmark next to the dance you’d like to repeat. We’ll incorporate requested dances into upcoming programs.

Please bring a snack to share. 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.
