This Sunday we’ll be waltzing to the band “Go Figure” with Janet Muse, Mike Dunn, and Suzanne Hosch. The dance will be in the Bumper Car Pavilion because the Ballroom will be hosting the Contrastock Festival. The weather forecast is for drier weather than we’re currently having so come out and enjoy the cooler temps!
Join us this Sunday for waltzing to the music of SOME ASSEMBLY: Donna Boylan (piano), Mary Flora (flute, saxophone, whistles), Joe Klausner (violin, mandolin) and Paul Miller (guitar). Beginner lesson at 2:45; dancing from 3:30-6:00. No partner necessary. Admission $10.
Sure it’s hot. So what? When you dance, you sweat out poisons. Think how pure you’ll feel after a few waltzes and a hambo or polka supplied by WAVERLEY STATION: David Knight (fiddle), Barbara Heitz (flute), Liz Donaldson (piano) and Ralph Gordon (bass). As always, there’s a beginner lesson at 2:45; music at 3:30. Admission $10. No partner needed. Please wear shoes that will be kind to the historic wood floor.
Note to the dance-starved: Prepare for a feast. WALTZ MAGIC, comprising some of the area’s best musicians — Alexander Mitchell (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), Barbara Heitz (flute), Liz Donaldson (piano) and Ralph Gordon (bass) — will play for the waltz this Sunday. Beginner lesson at 2:45. Music from 3:30-6:00. No partner required. A mere $10 for everything!
Fill up your water bottles, wear something cool, grab your dancing shoes and come to the Bumper Car Pavilion for an afternoon of waltzes with ADDISON BLEUFONTE: Marc Glickman (piano), Andrea Hoag (fiddle), David Julian Gray (clarinet) and David Lopez (drums). Lesson at 2:45; music at 3:30.
