TALENT AND STAFF
Joanna Reiner has
taught English dance, Scottish dance and Iongsword for nearly two
decades. In addition to being one of the leaders of the Philadelphia-based
Germantown Country Dancers, her calling has taken her from Amberst
to Ann Arbor, from NEFFA to Hey Days, from St. Croix to Hawaii to
Florence, Italy, including many session at Pinewoods Camp. While known
for her clear calling and instruction, Joanna is also an avid dance
gypsy, and in her spare time, works to support her dance habit.
Persons of Quality
are 3 talented musicians (Jim Oakden, Rebecca King and Jon Berger)
performing English Country Dance music with enthusiasm and imagination,
using a wide array of instruments. Each tune gets a vivid treatment
and driving rhythm, which is both wonderful to listen to, and a pleasure
to dance to. Persons of Quality have produced two CD's of ECD music.
They frequently play for ECD events on the west coast, and recently
they played for a dance weekend at Halsway Manor in England.
Ladies at Play Band from
Oklahoma will play for our Saturday afternoon dance sessions. You
can visit them at www.ladiesatplayband.com
Dale Rempert is our tireless sound man. Dale is a
caller in his own right and has kept contra dancing alive and well
in Austin for many years. He helps behind the scenes in many ways.
Thank you Dale!

There are many eateries near our hall this year. Quite a few are
within walking distance and many more only a short drive away. Here
is a partial list. These are just a few, many more may be found
with your favorite search engine. We will hopefully have a list
and map at the dance for your convenience.
Two easy ways to Reduce your carbon foot print..
Bring your own Cup
If you can, please bring your own cup or water bottle to use through-out
the weekend. We will have disposable cups on hand but, you know,
the less we use the better.
Fragrance Free Event
Please note this is a fragrance free event. Please avoid wearing
strong fragrances, including cologne, perfume, oils, etc., to the
dance. Many of our dancers have allergies and sensitivities to these
hidden chemicals. Thank you for your concern and cooperation.
It takes a village...

snacks or a brunch item please contact our volunteer coordinator
