Jan 15-17, 2016
A cozy winter weekend of hot old timey community dancing in the foothills of the Southern Appalachian mountains, near the Georgia-Alabama state line.
(To whet your appetite, view videos and pictures from the past here.)
We’ll dance in the historic 1930s ballroom at the Bald Rock Lodge, in Cheaha State Park (the highest point in Alabama), 25 miles south of Anniston, Alabama.
Tuition : $80 per person.
Georgy-Alabam presents Beth Molaro and Scott Russell calling southern squares and big sets -- and music by hard driving old time bands from Alabama and Georgia--Red Mountain White Trash, Mick Kinney's Hick Hoppers and the Beverly Smith Band.
Print the registration form, fill it out and mail it with your check to the address shown on the form. We limit registration to the first lucky 80. We'll send you detailed information about the camp and 2016 schedule soon after you register.
You will be responsible for choosing and paying for your own lodging. We have a block of rooms reserved until December 1st. After that we can no longer guarantee you a room as the park will make these rooms available to the general public.
The State Park offers motel rooms, cabins, chalets and campsites. Reserve your lodging under group number 1728 (the Georgy-Alabam square dance group). It is very important that you tell them that number or at least the name of the event; otherwise they will tell you that all rooms/cabins are reserved. You can make reservations at www.alapark.com/cheaharesort.
For folks on a tight budget: For $20 you can reserve floor space and showers in the lodge for the weekend when you send in your registration form.
Because Georgy-Alabam is held atop a mountain in January, there is the possibility that a winter storm will cause postponement or cancellation. If you are buying airline tickets, be sure to get refundable ones or purchase travel insurance that will cover this possibility.
