Cascadia English Country Dance
May 3-5, 2013
Join us for some great music and great dancing. The Cascadia Weekend is another opportunity, along with the Seattle English
Ball, to dance and party and celebrate. English Country Dancers of all levels of experience are welcome. The weekend starts
with a Friday English Country Dance. Then we'll have workshops/dances on Saturday (lunch is included!) and a festive dance
Saturday night. (Please "dress up" if you want!) On Sunday we will have two more workshops/dances, with perhaps a sunny day
and a picnic in the afternoon.
And of course there is the MUSIC. Frankly, the reason we do this every year is to show off and enjoy the Northwest’s gift to the
universe, our cast of great muscians. We will announce them later.
The music will be lovingly coordinated by Anita Anderson.
The sound will be under the expert care of Frank Brown.
