Beth Parkes from dancecallers.com got us all moving around in circles and squares, dosey-doe-ing and generally having a great time. The various American and English folk dances took a minute to get used to, but Beth was terrific at reading the crowd and giving us each a new step to learn once we mastered the last. Plus, her calls were like ad lib singing over the music.
The event was crowned by the Virginia Reel -- a real crowd-pleaser.
Then Beth flipped her sound system over to a playlist of popular dance songs from the 70s to today -- including a few that we've sung in concert! Much boogeying was had by all.
Thank you, Joseph and Terry!
