UPCOMING HCD MOSTLY WALTZ DANCESIn addition to filling out the waiver/contact-tracing form described on the home page, all those attending HCD Mostly Waltz dances must be fully vaccinated, though masks are optional but recommended (please bring your own). Also, as was the case prior to the pandemic, drinking water and paper cups will be provided, but if you prefer not sharing the water spigot with others, feel free to bring your own water.
Sunday, December 4, we’ll be mostly waltzing to the live music of Larry Unger and two of his friends. Read all about Larry here. For this event Larry has put together a trio you’re gonna want to dance to. Joining him will be Anna Patton (clarinet), and Sarah Hadley-Yakir (fiddle).
Note that there will be no HCD Mostly Waltz dance in January because the first Sunday in January is New Year’s Day. See you in February.
HCD’s Mostly Waltz events take place from 3:00–5:30 the first Sunday afternoon of every month (except summer months, when we take a break) at Temple Beth Torah in Wethersfield. If you’re new to waltzing, come early for a free beginner lesson from 2:30–3:00. In addition, during band breaks we have mini-lessons on some aspect of waltz or another popular dance style. Our dances feature waltzes, waltz mixers, and other couple dances (though you needn’t come as a couple as there are plenty of singles to dance with). Every third tune is a tango, swing, foxtrot, or other couple dance.
General admission to our live-music dances is $15, $10 when there’s a DJ. In both cases, students (with school ID) are $7, and children 12 and under (who must be vaccinated) are admitted free. These fees are subject to change. Volunteers are normally reimbursed for their admission charge in exchange for a half hour of their time provided we are able to cover our costs for that dance. If you’d like to be included on our roster of prospective volunteers, complete the form at the bottom of this page, including your name, email address, and “I’D LIKE TO VOLUNTEER” in the Subject field.
