Friday May 17, 2013 - English Country Dance cancelled

The Friday dance is cancelled, but there's an English workshop/dance on Saturday
at the Kimmswick Dance weekend at Cuivre River State Park in Troy, MO.

Saturday May 18, 2013 - 2:30-4:30pm English Workshop/Dance at Kimmswick

The English Workshop/Dance at Kimmswick is usually a bunch of fun - we're joined by other contra/English crossover types from five states around.  If you're new to it, we'll be helpful, but since the dancers at Kimmswick are usually pretty highly skilled, we may just go ahead and call our regular dances. You'll catch on - the basic idea is just the same; there are just a few different moves to learn.
