July 31 Special Advanced English Country Dance
Caller: Lise Dyckman
Band: Christopher Jacoby (accordion/mandolin), Maggie Moore (violin), Judy Linsenberg (winds)
Our 5th Sunday series is for experienced dancers, so instruction will be streamlined and the dances will be more complex than at our 1st and 3rd Sunday dances. We expect dancers attending these sessions to be completely comfortable with heys for 3 and 4, dolphin heys, figure 8s, and triple minor progression. They should also be able to maintain their sense of orientation within the set. This is not the time to bring your friends who are new to English country dancing, though we’d love to see them at the 1st and 3rd Sundays.
Wear smooth-soled, low-heeled shoes. Admission is $13 for members and affiliates, $15 for non-members, $5 for dancers 30 and under. Fragrance-free event, no perfume or scented products please.
Because of ongoing COVID-19:
— There is a limit of 48 attendees, and preregistration is encouraged (though not required). To preregister, please email Tom at email@example.com.
— Unless otherwise specified, our Sebastopol English dance series requires the wearing of appropriate masks while indoors. N95, KN95, KF94 and technical cloth masks, such as Enro Tech Mask, Happy Mask Pro, Proper Cloth Mask, Graf Lantz Zenbu Mask, and Kitsbow Face Mask, are acceptable. Your old cloth masks will need to be retired for our dance, sorry. Please check the NBCDS.org home page for the current CDC Community Level; at the high level, evidence of a negative COVID-19 rapid test taken within 6 hours of the start of the dance is also required.
— If you are not feeling well the day of the dance please stay home to protect yourself and others.
— During the snack break, please keep your mask on until you and your snacks are outside.
— Please avoid wearing any scented products.
