UPCOMING MOSTLY WALTZ DANCES
Sunday, November 4, music will be courtesy of Donal Sheets (cello) and Cedar Stanistreet (fiddle). Read about Donal here and Cedar here. Janice Jacobsen and Damian Vincent will show us the waltz line dance in the free lesson.
Sunday, December 2, we’ll be mostly waltzing to the duo virtuosity of Julie Metcalfe (fiddle and vocals) and Larry Unger (guitar), with Kent Koeninger leading the free dance lesson. See and hear Julie and Larry perform here.
Sunday, January 6, our musical guests will be Cedar Stanistreet (fiddle) and Guillaume Sparrow-Pepin (piano, guitar). Read about Cedar here and Guillaume here. The free lesson on various waltz styles will be given by Charlie Mandelberg.
HCD’s Mostly Waltz events are from 3:00–6:00 the first Sunday afternoon of every month (except summer months, when we take a break) at Griffith Academy 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 dances is $15, or $7 for students (with school ID). 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.
