Playshops with Seth Tepfer

Friday PreWeekend - Callers' Intensive Master Class
Seth Tepfer won't be averrable for a planned pre-weekend callers workshop. Maybe next year!
Saturday Afternoon - Color Outside the Lines (for everyone)
Modern Contra dances focus on the duple minor improper formation, with occasional forays into 4-4 or Sicillian formations. But there is a whole world of other whimsical formations to play in. Break out of the box and color outside of the lines in hexagons, triangles, double beckets, triple minors, and more. Plus: cross breed a square with a contra to get a Weston-Mountain Zia formation.
Saturday Afternoon - Calling 202: Programming an evening (for callers, or prospective callers)
Thinking about your goals for the evening, putting a cohesive program together that makes sense. What goes on before the evening and after the evening.

The Blue Moon “After Party”

... will be at a new venue this year. Come to Maggie Meyers Irish Pub (and here is our map) after the Saturday evening dance to share drinks from the bar and snacks to share from dancers (or pitch in a few dollars when you register for the general snack fund). Unfortunately, the venue requires us to limit attendance to those 19 year old, or older. Maggie’s is about a mile from the Exhibit Hall, at 1009 Henderson Road Northwest
Huntsville, AL 35816
. Note the venue does allow smoking, but ventilation is decent, and we'll pretty much take the place over.


Work scholarships are available to those who may not be able to afford regular admission. Email for details.


Children are welcome at the dance, under their parents’ supervision at all times. No childcare will be provided.
