March 23

Shepherdstown Music & Dance is hosting a

Special Dance Event!  English Country Dance Program!

Afternoon English Workshop and Evening Dance
Saturday, March 23,  2-5 pm  and 8-11pm 

English Country Dance music combines the intricate melodies and refined qualities of chamber music with the liveliness of the folk traditions into a dance form that has stood the test of time from the Renaissance to the present day. New dances and melodies are being written today, and the program may feature a few dances from dance choreographer, Gary Roodman’s latest collection, Calculated Figures, Volume 12.

Melissa Running will be teaching and calling the figures.  The afternoon music will be provided by Becky Ross on fiddle and Liz Donaldson on piano.  The evening dance will feature a big band of teachers and students … The Oorts-Wiesler Orchestra, led by Paul Oorts and Dave Wiesler, which promises to be a whole lot of fun!  The workshop and dance are $15 each or $25 for both for non-members and $12 each or $20 for SMaD members.  Come experience this unique and vibrant dance form!  Potluck snacks at the break!
