Enjoy the arrival of spring in the best way possible–by dancing, of course.

Is there better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than attending a waltz? Of course not! (For teetotalers, that is. Alcohol’s a no-no in Glen Echo.) The weather will be perfect for dancing to CONTRATOPIA: Patrice Pakiz (piano, oboe), Erik Sessions (fiddle), Theodore Hodapp (melodeon, concertina), John Goodin (mandolin, guitar) and Pat O’Loughlin (English concertina, banjo, cajón and Irish harp–okay, the last one’s a joke). As always, there’s a beginner waltz lesson at 2:45, included with admission of $13 per person ($5 with valid student ID). Music from 3:30-6:00. No partner necessary and EVERYONE is welcome.
An evening waltz? On a Saturday? Yes, March 9, at 7:00 p.m., Brookmont Church Social Hall, 4000 Virginia Place, Bethesda. Sponsored by Waltzomatic. www.waltzomaticwaltzes.com
The park is open and the waltz will occur as scheduled. See you there!
Weather.com shows rain for much of the afternoon, a mix and some snow 4-5pm, and back to rain only by 6pm. Since temperatures will be in the mid- to high 30s all day, significant accumulation is unlikely.
In case the weather gets ugly tomorrow (March 3), check the Glen Echo hotline 301-320-2330 for updates. GEPPAC announces closures fairly early in the day — according to their recording by 7am for daytime events such as our afternoon waltz. Hoping the predictions are mere bluster.
Add a little sweetness to your Sunday with SUGAR BEAT: Susan Brandt (flute), Elke Baker (fiddle) and Marc Glickman (piano), playing waltzes and other tunes for your dancing pleasure. Of course, there’s a beginner waltz lesson at 2:45, followed by dancing from 3:30-6:00. No partner required. Admission is $13 per person ($5 with valid student ID), cash or check (no plastic — sorry). Warming beverages will be available!
It’s not too soon to start thinking about the annual Strauss Ball (Saturday, May 4)! Viennese waltz lessons, taught by Mike Marcotte, begin April 4.
