June 2004 Dancing

Of special note is that again we're changing the focus of the teaching sessions at the Pownal dance. At 6:30 I'll be starting with easy dances for all ages - so hopefully our beginning dancers and those with children will be able to come. Experienced dancers - please don't shy away... we need you to help the new folks - and later in the evening we'll be doing many of the challenging dances that we have learned over the past year. Cimpoi, Bicak, Five figure Cacak, Vlasko, Bourree, plus your favorite requests!

Also note that the July 4 Pownal dance is cancelled.

Here's what's detailed above:
- Sunday, June 6, Pownal, International Folk Dance and Potluck
- Saturday, June 19, Portland, Klezfest
