Jane Austen camp

If your attraction/connection to English Country Dance is Jane Austen, check out this  Jane Austen Summer Camp Brochure

July 26-28, 2013 in Middletown, CT.  Looks like tremendous fun, sponsored by the CT chapter of JASNA (Jane Austen Society of N. America). Includes Regency dance instruction by Susan DiGuardiola (an excellent teacher) and an evening ball.

Or, check out their website: http://jasnactsummercamp.wordpress.com/

(Dancers note: apparently tickets are available for the ball only – while Regency style is a little different from our current-day English Country Dance, Susan is an excellent teacher/caller. $30 ticket includes dessert & valet parking! Ball-only registration form)
