July 31 Special Advanced English Country Dance
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, the NBCDS Sebastopol English dance will also require the wearing of appropriate masks. 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.
— If you are not feeling well the day of the dance please stay home to protect yourself and others.
— During the break we ask dancers keep their masks on while collecting snacks in the kitchen and waiting to unmask until outdoors.
— Please avoid wearing any scented products.
— Please mention the dance to friends!
