A note from Judi about prep sessions for the Celebration of Spring Ball:
Some of this year's dances are 'old
friends', some a bit less familiar, and a few are challenging and fun [once
learned]; we hope you'll agree that all are well worth the
effort. This year's "for those who know" dances are Miss de Jersey's
Memorial and St. Margaret's Hill.
FYI, there's also a grid (click here) so you may see which dances are planned for which nights for the next few weeks. The list for February 27th appears below.

Beginners are warmly welcomed at all Thursday dances. Come with or without a partner. The basics of English Country Dancing are easily learned. Come early (7:15 PM) to receive some initial guidance. Experienced dancers will dance with you during the evening. Here are some of our experienced dancers doing Newcastle and Beau's Retreat at the Celebration of Spring Ball.
Some experience is highly desirable for dance parties and special events.
