"Mr. Frederick Park has been teaching and collecting dances for more than 35 years. The traditions one may experience or revisit under his direction include American circles, squares and contra dances, English country dance, French traditional dance from Chavignol (Sancerroise, Cher), Cajun French two-step and waltz, Scandinavian turning dances and play-party or singing games from Appalachia and the Sea Islands of Georgia on America's southern Atlantic coast.
Be it a regular community dance, a special event where dance may facilitate "community" amongst diverse peoples or an educational environment where interest in traditions may include dance, you'll find an energetic and eclectic approach to fun in his capable hands.
Frederick Park has been a teacher, dance instructor, humorist and Master of Ceremonies at every major dance festival in the USA and several overseas."
We will start this magic evening with homemade cookies at 7 pm. We will provide coffee, tea and milk! That will be followed with the usual order of events: instruction starts at 7:30 and dancing continues until 11. Bring cookies! Cost will be $10.00 for the night.
