April 30 and May 1 will see the biggest English Country Dance event of the year. Join us for Spring Dance Weekend! Registration for the weekend is now open. Download the flier at right and get yourself signed up!
The event includes workshops Saturday afternoon, a dance and party on Saturday evening, and May Day in the Park on Sunday afternoon.
National and local talent for the weekend includes Jacqueline Schwab, Michelle Levy, Rebecca King, Quite Carried Away, David Newitt, Yvonne Couvillion, and Gary Sandler.
More detail, including bios and photos, is on the 2016 Spring Dance Weekend page.
We can’t get enough of caller David Newitt, so he has graciously agreed to return to Roseville this Sunday, June 7, to lead us in another smile-filled afternoon of English Country Dancing! In addition to other dances both easy and challenging, David will help us polish some of the dances he taught in April. Our very own “Quite Carried Away” will provide the live music for our dancing pleasure.
- Time: 3:00 – 6:00PM, with newcomer’s workshop at 2:30PM
- Location: Polish American Hall, 327 Main St, Roseville
If you saw the couple dancing in any of the Jane Austen movies such as “Pride and Prejudice,” you saw English Country Dancing. If you can walk, and know the difference between left and right, you can do these same dances!
As usual, beginners are welcome and no partners are necessary. If you are bringing, or know of any, first-timers, please ask them to come at 2:30 for the “Introduction to Basics” mini workshop that precedes the dance. First-timers attending the “Introduction to Basics” workshop receive a coupon for half-off at their next dance! It’s always lovely when people bring a snack to share!
Admission is $10 for adults; $8 for full-time college students; $5 for high school and younger; $25 maximum per family.
