Appeared at NEFFA 2020:
Great 21st Century Tunes ECDDS Saturday April 25, 10:00am to 10:50am, Upper Gym [show on grid]
A small but wonderful sampling of English dances set to 21st century tunes by talented American composers (such as Kate Barnes, Rachel Bell, Daron Douglas, Jonathan Jensen, Shira Kammen, Rebecca King, Martha Stokely, Charlene Thomson, Dave Wiesler — to name a few).
Hello Again ContrasDS Saturday April 25, 3:00pm to 3:50pm, Lower Gym [show on grid]
Reunions! Dances where you lose your partner and find them again. These dances are a little more complex than "level 1" contras, but Diane’s crystal clear, efficient walk-throughs, with tips regarding shadows and end effects, make them accessible to anyone who knows the contra basics.
Rum and Onions XLI ContrasDS Saturday April 25, 8:30pm to 9:20pm, Upper Gym [show on grid]
Contra dances that feature great storyline and flow between figures.
English Country Dance: Pleasures and TreasuresDS Saturday April 25, 10:00pm to 11:30pm, Commons B [show on grid]
Come experience English Country Dances old and new, and discover the musical, choreographic, and social delights in store.
English Dances with Crooked TunesDS Sunday April 26, 10:00am to 10:50am, Upper Gym [show on grid]
Forget 32 bars -- this session is all about tunes with unusual phrasing. Extra-long, extra-short, a mix of meters -- it's all here. Familiarity with ECD figures is helpful.
