This month’s dances will be programmed, taught and prompted by caller Lea Smith, who, at 7:30 (immediately preceding the main dance at 8:00), will lead an introductory session for newcomers and old hands alike to learn (or refresh) basic ECD figures, including any featured in the evening’s dance program. No partner required; come as you are; if you can walk, you can dance.

In a special event preceding this dance, at 6:45 Lea Smith will lead Introduction to the Waltz, a 30-minute beginning waltz lesson. Advance registration required (see below). No partner needed. Please wear shoes that slide, not grip.

The Evening’s Events

  • 6:45-7:15 Introduction to the Waltz, with Lea Smith ($5 separate admission)
  • 7:30-8:00 Newcomer ECD instruction
  • 8:00-10:00 English Country Dance
  • Admission $15 per person (toward hall rental). Waltz lesson $5 additional.

The ever-changing public health situation requires that we do certain things differently than in the past, including the requirement to register in advance. Please review the following:

  • Advance registration required (see below); capacity is limited.
  • Must show proof of full vaccination, now defined as 14 days following the most recent booster for which you are eligible.
  • Face coverings required at all times. Acceptable face coverings include a cloth mask (of 2 or more layers of tightly woven cloth), but a hospital grade, or N95 type mask is preferred; bandanas and neck gaiters are not acceptable.
  • Dances are fragrance-free. Please avoid all products not labeled “fragrance-free.”
  • Bring your own cup or water bottle. No communal snack table; BYO treats.

We’ll likely be dancing to recorded music for the foreseeable future. Our beloved long-time house band, Take a Dance, looks forward to returning as soon as health safety logistics and protocols can be worked out to everyone’s satisfaction. This could be months down the road; we just don’t know.

Dances will continue as long as the public health situation allows, so the schedule is subject to change; scheduled dances may be cancelled.

How to Register in Advance (required)

To attend a dance, please contact Mary K Champagne no later than the Friday preceding the dance. (Clicking the above link will open a new, pre-addressed email to registration coordinator Mary K Champagne.)
