Each year in mid September we run a “Double English” dance. There is an afternoon session of English country dancing designed for those who welcome some challenge and want to dance without instruction in basic skills. This is followed by a potluck supper and our regular evening English country dance. Calling is shared between a group of callers.
The 2012 Double English will be held September 8th in our usual Fayetteville location. The callers will be Terry Glasspool, Pamela Goddard, Richard Sauvain and Dan Seppeler. Music will be provided by Eileen Nicholson, whose delicious fiddle playing is familiar to many of us, and Joyce Crouch, a visiting pianist from western Massachusetts. Joyce’s graceful and scintillating piano style has made her band, Pleasures of the Town, a staple of the English country dance scene in the Pioneer Valley.
Here are the details:
Advanced English Dance: 3:30-6:30
Regular Evening Dance: 8:00-11:00
Admission: $8 each session or $12 for both (as with all our dances, supporters can pay more and students or those with limited income can pay less)
