40th Brattleboro Playford Ball

The 2018 Brattleboro Playford Ball (the 40th!) program has been announced and registration is open!

You can download a PDF of the flyer, which includes a listing of all the dances, here.

Our MCs this year will be Robin Hayden and Daniel Popowich with music by Karen Axelrod, Eric Martin, and Anna Patton . Bob Mills returns to fill the hall with a great sound.

All dances are talked through only (no walk-throughs, no prompting). A few dances are For Those Who Know (ie, not even a talk-through).

The 40th Annual Brattleboro Playford Ball is the evening of Saturday, November 17, 2018, 7:30-11:30 pm. A walk-through with most dances being thoroughly taught will be in the afternoon, 1:30-4:00 pm. Robin and Daniel will lead the walk-through with Jean Monroe on piano. As in years past, both the walk-through and Ball will be at Oak Grove School in Brattleboro, VT.

There will be prep sessions on the three Tuesdays leading up to the Ball, Oct 30 and Nov 6 & 13 , all from 7-9pm. The prep sessions will be held, as in previous years, at the Brattleboro School of Dance.

The Ball Booklet with complete dance descriptions is available as a downloadable PDF. We are no longer mailing printed booklets by postal mail. Printed booklets will be available at the Amherst Monday Night ECD and Tuesday Practice Sessions in Brattleboro.

Available videos for many of the dances on the program are available here. (With thanks to David Tilove for putting this list together for us!)
