Sunday Waltz, May 15

Tra la, it’s May, the lusty month of May
That lovely month when waltzers* go blissfully astray
~Camelot (the musical)

Your highnesses may dance, from 3:30-6:00 in the regal Spanish Ballroom, for a tribute of $15 per person ($5 for peons–er, students and children), payable in cash or by check. For novices, there’s a beginner lesson at 2:45.; minstrelsy from 3:30-6:00 by PETRICHORD: Colleen Holroyd, Sophie Chang and Bobby LaRose. No experience or partner needed. ALL lords and ladies welcome.

*(Apologies to Lerner and Loewe)

Come in out of the rain tonight!

Join dancers at the Strauss Ball in the Spanish Ballroom because:

1. It’s a fundraiser to support the programs at Glen Echo Park.

2. It ’s a booster—to your social life, your psyche and your circulatory system.

3. It’s glamorous—you get to wear finery that’s been mothballed for two years.

4. It’s one of the few times you can march in a—Grand March.

5. Finally, and this really truly matters, it’s FUN!

Note: Covid and offspring continue to bedevil us. Masking is optional, but encouraged for everyone’s safety.

Update – Masking in the Ballroom

As you may know, Montgomery County recently relaxed its policy on mandatory masking. Since it’s difficult to manage a “socially distanced” waltz, Waltz Time has decided to continue the mask requirement for the safety of all our patrons. This applies to the March 6 and March 20 waltzes. Thereafter, we’ll re-evaluate the mask policy, basing our decisions on Covid case numbers, health directives, and any MoCo mandates. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
