Gary Sandler believes in helping dancers get more fun out of their dances, whether through safe and comfortable hand-holds or clear direct instructions. He likes to vary the dance structures, shifting from lines to circles and squares.
The music will be provided by Quite Carried Away & Friends: Dick Holdstock on octave mandolin and banjo, Arlene Jamar on piano, Jane Kostka on whistle, and Martin Lodahl on viola da gamba, with guests Janet Kurnick on violin and Marilyn Cooper on keyboard.

As usual, beginners are welcome. 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. No partners are needed, so come by yourself or with friends or with family. Both events are accessible to people with disabilities.

COVID Safety Information
We are no longer offering a rapid self-test option, and now require complete vaccination. We did offer a self-test option for a while, but it was never used, and on the request of a number of callers and dancers, we are returning to full vaccination policy.
The SCDS Covid safety policy requires full vaccination, including boosters. Masks must be worn at all times while inside the building. We recommend N95, KN95, or KF94 masks and do not allow masks with exhaust valves (because they don’t protect others), cloth masks, or surgical masks. Please bring your own water and snacks, and plan to step outside to eat or drink. Windows and doors will be open to ensure good ventilation, so please dress accordingly. Most importantly, if you’re not feeling well, stay home and join us next time.
If you haven’t been to a dance yet, please email a photo of your vaccination card to Laura Leonelli at firstname.lastname@example.org before the dance. Please also print a copy of our waiver form, sign it, and bring your paper copy to the dance. You only need to do this once; we will record that you have provided this information, so that it will be valid for future dances.
