SATURDAY: 11:00 - 12:00

Dance Workshop: Waltz 101 for Contra Dancers

Leaders: Tami Dahl & Ed Howe
Location: Studio

Come learn the joys of waltzing! This type of folk waltz is casual and about feeling free. We are not going to worry about counting music or watching our feet. In this workshop we will learn how to get our mind out of the way and let our spirit take in the music and tell us how to dance. No experience or partner needed! Participants will learn some basics about how to intuitively move to waltz music and we will play with music to help us hone our listening and dancing skills.

SATURDAY: 12:30 - 1:30

Callers' Group Discussion: Positional Calling

Leader: JoLaine Pokorney
Location: Far Room

Are you an experienced Positional Caller who would be willing to share tips and tricks for how to do Positional without tripping all over your tongue? Are you just beginning to think about adding Positional to your repertoire and would love some pointers on how to incorporate it into your favorite dances? If you said "Why, Yes!" to either of the above, bring your cards and come join the convo!

SATURDAY: 4:15 - 5:15

Flourishes Workshop for Both Roles

Leader: Seth Tepfer with The Lizards
Location: Studio

Anyone can stand on an unfamiliar side in a couple (Lark/Left/Gent; Robin/Right/Lady) and survive a contra dance -- all you have to remember is that if you are on the Right you stick your Right arm out in a swing and if you are on the Left you stick your Left arm out in a swing). But who wants to just survive when you can dance with verve and style and do all those flourishes that makes contra dance so magical, no matter WHAT side you dance on? Come to this workshop and up your Game as an ambidexterous contra dancer!!!

SUNDAY: 10:30 - 11:30
