All the dances are free, but donations gladly accepted to help GEPPAC defray costs for this event.
There will be photography, painting, jewelry, sculpture in the Spanish Ballroom, and dancing in the Bumper Car Pavilion. This is a great chance to bring friends to a waltz (brief lesson included) and to give them a taste of all that Glen Echo Park has to offer.
Now that the weekend is over, it’s time to plan next weekend! Join Larry Unger and friends Ralph Gordon and Alexander Mitchell for an afternoon of waltzes (and perhaps a tango or hambo or swing for good measure–pun intended) in the Glen Echo Spanish Ballroom. Introductory waltz lesson at 2:45 is included with admission of $15 per person ($5 for children and full-time students), payable in cash or by check at the door. No partner necessary. ALL are welcome.
A reminder to test yourself for covid after attending a social dance where you were in close contact with others, especially if you know that someone in the group has tested positive. We’ve heard recently from two waltz attendees–one tested negative and the other, who tested positive, is in quarantine. If you are even slightly symptomatic or feel unwell, please test yourself. If positive, we ask that you wait until you test negative before coming to the next dance, which is on August 21 with Larry Unger, Alexander Mitchell and Ralph Gordon. Thank you for being considerate of your fellow dancers.
