Feet Retreat Canceled
Alas, we must wait yet longer to experience the wonderful dance weekends we have always looked forward to in the past. Covid seems to have discouraged many from attending dances and dance weekends so we reluctantly decided to not have a Feet Retreat this year, conserving our resources for a safer time when we can fully enjoy a dance weekend.
If you have already registered and paid, your funds will be refunded shortly with our thanks for registering and good wishes while we await better opportunities ahead.
A reminder: please make sure you are vaccinated and boosted according to CDC recommendations. That is helpful to everyone and gives us all more freedom.

Fundraising update July 4, 2021:
Thanks to ongoing donations we have the financial means to begin holding dances as the Covid situation improves. You are helping to meet our many expenses and to reach out and expose more people to the contra dance and music tradition.
Thanks to those on the Board who continually volunteer their time to keep the dances going. Also, thanks to all who volunteer to help in various ways at each dance. It takes a community for it all to happen, thank you!
