Joan Walton, the acclaimed dance teacher and choreographer will lead us in an another wonderful dance weekend on March 8-10, 2024! The focus of the weekend will be Jazz Age, Rotary Waltz, & Swing and will be a mix of vintage and modern dances that are in that focus group. The weekend will be held at the Russel Acton Folk Center in Berea, KY (about 40 miles south of Lexington). The weekend will start with a class at 7:30 pm Friday and conclude on Sunday at 1:00 pm. Attendance is by preregistration only and will be role-balanced. The prerequisite for attendance is knowing any form of social dance. You will be able to choose between the traditional roles of "lead" and "follow" as well as the role of “either” exclusively for those comfortable dancing both roles and who can easily switch roles in order to help role-balance the room. Note that we will rotate partners regularly (unless you and your partner choose not to rotate), so role-balancing and signing up with a registration partner dancing the opposite role is intended to keep everyone dancing. Tuition will be $95. A limited number of full-time students will be accepted at $45, and a limited number of entrances will offered as "work exchange fellowships"--if interested in being considered for a work exchange fellowship, please contact us by email. Space is limited by design!
