Fall season starting up again this Saturday, September 9th!! Joanne Reiner Wilkinson will be coming up from the Philadelphia area to call a fabulous dance for us – you won’t want to miss it. Check the schedule page to see details about the October and November dances.
We will be having our regular dance on October 22nd, but unfortunately our originally scheduled caller Joanna Reiner Wilkinson is unable to be with us. Luckily, we are happy to welcome Mary Jones, another favorite (and fun) caller. Music will be provided by Bill Ouimette and Barbara Pixton. We look forward to having you join us!
KECD recently received a grant from CDSS which will help us cover the gap between the money we take in at the door and the evening’s costs. Did you know that we need to have 25 dancers to meet expenses for any given dance? Ideally we would love to see 30 (or even more!) dancers each month, but until that time, this grant will allow us to continue our beloved series without running a deficit. Many thanks to CDSS for their assistance!
We had a wonderful dance yesterday in Narragansett at The Towers – a record number of dancers including quite a nice group of first-timers. Martha did an excellent job of calling to the mixed-experience level crowd, and we hope many of the newer faces will join us again next month in South Kingstown at the Land Trust barn. March 19th, potluck at 6:00, dancing at 7:30. Calling by Mary Jones, music by Dawn Chung and Cindy Ladd. I’ll try to post some pictures from The Towers soon – my week is a little busy/crazy, but stay tuned!
Join us on SUNday at 2:00-5:00 pm at The Towers in Narragansett, RI. Calling by Martha Griffin, music by the inimitable Dawn Chung and Bill Ouimette. If you’ve been to The Towers, you know how special it is. If, like me, you’ve never been inside, now’s your chance!! (We can’t promise you green trees and swim-able water, but we can promise you a superb view and a wonderful time).
Okay all you folks who got Up’s or FitBit’s etc. for Christmas – betcha anything you haven’t done your 10,000 yet today. Come to tonight’s dance – high number of steps per hour, plus excellent live music and great companionship. The best $10 you’ll spend all week!
Happy New Year, dancers, and welcome to the 2016 Kingston English Country Dance season!
Our first dance will be on Saturday, January 16th, and it will be a volunteer caller dance! We will first have a potluck dinner at 6:00 PM, and the dance will start at 7:30 PM. Music will be provided by Dawn Chung and Cindy Ladd. Admission is $10.
Remember that it’s always a good idea to show up in time for the first dance – this way the dance can start off strong, and any beginners can have a chance to dance with an experienced dancer early on, in one of the easier early dances.
We will also be sending out the 2016 schedule and flier soon, so stay tuned.
