Comments from Students Last Year
" The English Country Dancing was lots of fun and a wonderful way to become acquainted
" I really liked all the classes because they had a good mix of history and movement
and provided a lot of context."
"All the teachers were knowledgeable and had their own style."
"It was all new to me-my first experience in the field- so I loved it all!"
We are very excited about our summer workshop at Goucher College in Baltimore,
I am happy to announce Charles Garth will be joining the faculty this year. We
look forward to our revised format and to the workshop's opening and closing dance
parties. I hope to see you at this unique workshop!
