Faultline Frolic 2022

Faultline Frolic is back: June 17-19, 2022

Registration is open!

Our FAULTLINE FROLIC contra dance weekend begins Friday, June 17, 2022 with check-in at 7:30 p.m. and dancing starting at 8:00 p.m. The Santa Rosa dance weekend ends Sunday at 2:00 p.m., but Faultline registrants get in free at the Sunday night AFTERSHOCK dance in Petaluma. Our band is the exhilarating NOTORIOUS – Betsy Branch, fiddle (substituting for Eden MacAdam-Somer who is welcoming a new baby); Larry Unger, guitar; Sam Bartlett, mandolin; and Mark (Pokey) Hellenberg, percussion, with the fabulous caller Frannie Marr.

LOCATION: FAULTLINE FROLIC is held at Monroe Hall, 1400 West College Avenue, in Santa Rosa, fifty miles north   of the Golden Gate and just minutes off Highway 101. Monroe Hall, with its beautiful maple floor, is among the finest dance floors in Northern California. Check out their website at http://monroe-hall.com.

COVID POLICY: In accordance with current NBCDS policy, Faultline dancers will need to be confirmed vaccinated and boosted, and masked while dancing.

ACCOMMODATIONS and CARPOOLS: We provide an event Facebook page for dancers wishing to arrange shared housing and/or carpools. We make every effort to find housing for out-of-town dancers if desired. We appreciate locals offering hospitality to traveling dancers – it’s a wonderful way to expand your network of dance friends.

FOOD: We provide local and organic food throughout the weekend. Included are Saturday dinner featuring Michael Martin’s homegrown salad greens and local family-made tamales, Sunday breakfast of organic freshly-ground multigrain pancakes, fresh fruit and sausage, and plentiful healthy (and some decadent) snacks. A list of local restaurants will also be available.

REGISTRATION & CANCELLATIONS: Registration is now open! The general registration fee is $160.00. The work-trade fee is $80 for a 4-hour time commitment (limited quantity; must be approved). If you want to attend but need a limited income scholarship, indicate that on the registration form and we will contact you. You can sign up now on our Faultline Registration page.
