While Steve's day job will alas be preventing him from going, I hope to see some of you at the Black Friday Bash later today at the fabulous Glen Echo, MD Spanish Ballroom! Government Contra Act and the Capital Quicksteps Quadrille Orchestra will be playing in the afternoon and evening, respectively, to the calling of Kathy Anderson and Ron Buchanan. Then at midnight, the festivities will move into the Ballroom Annex, where Brian Hamshar will call a techno contra to the music of dJ improper. Dancing starts at 3 PM.
As of this writing, I have not yet decided whether I am (or whether we are) going to be able to make it up to the Glenside, PA community on Saturday at 2 PM to attend ContraCopia-Dance O'Plenty with Bob Isaacs, Adina Gordon, and Kathy Anderson calling over the span of nine hours to the music of Jane's Gang and Larry Unger, Brooklyn Swing Ensemble, and the Avant Gardeners; I know a few people from Glen Echo were planning on going, and if you're going to be in the area, you should go too!
Hope to see (and dance with!) some of you at these events!
Carry on Dancing,
