IPHONES & TABLETS, COMPUTERS - OH, MY! We really can't live without them, these days. I ran into a technical problem. I solved it. It meant retooling my entire website and decorating the home page with a photo I took of a miserable but wonderfully photogenic piano at Hunter's Point some years back. (Poor thing was beyond the help of a facial, that's for SURE!) As always, websites need some tweaking; if you see anything that is potentially confusing, I'd really appreciate hearing about it!

HARMONY WORKSHOPS COMING THIS FALL 2017
LIBBY MCLAREN AND I ARE PLANNING to host two more workshops in the fall. The first one will be an intermediate level workshop on Saturday, October 21; we're calling this class, One Song Learned Well. We'll structure our lesson on a single song to illustrate what you need to know about singing harmony. The second workshop will be for beginners on Saturday, November 11, like the one we offered back in March. In spring 2018, we'll have organized an advanced workshop for you to try out, too! If you're dying to have me hold you a seat, just shoot me an email, but rest assured, you'll hear about it when we open the class registration.
WHY DANCE? GOOD REASON #3
I JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU LOTS OF REASONS why you should consider Contra Dance, and here's another one. Contra Dance is for EVERYONE! It can be super-simplified for very young kids. Then, just like when you used to read to your toddler to model the behavior and joy of reading, kids can follow easy, fun patterns that repeat to music. As they learn what to expect, they internalize that this is something they needn't fear. But this works for grownups who fear dancing, also, and while certainly Contra Dance can utilize complex figures for very serious dancers who live to go to special dance weekends, community dances are evenings of crowd pleasingly easy and fun moves. Either way, you get a helping hand from your caller - that's me!
