Summer Soirée 2014 REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
Please note: we had a lot of sponsors this year as well as some promises to hold space for some folks who helped last year, so we are already more than half full.
I will open up the waitlist after that, and I fully expect to get most of the waitlisted folks in - so don't despair!
If you are a sponsor, you should have already gotten an email from me for early registration. If you didn't please check your junk mail/bulk folder ... and send me a PM on FB or an email if you don't find it.
See the Registration Page for more details. Thanks!
Stay In Touch!! If you haven't already joined our Group on Facebook, please visit Friends of Summer Soirée and make sure you know who the bands and callers are as we announce them! We do offer special bonuses from time to time for Facebook members, so don't miss out!
2014 Line UP!
The fantastic Mean Lids and the percussive brilliance of Contraforce will drive the beat of Summer Soirée 2014. Our callers are Diane Silver and Hank Morris.
Facebook is the fastest way to communicate with contra dancers, so announcements are made there first, and on the website immediately thereafter. Friends of Summer Soirée
Gender Balance? Yes. Sort of. We will try to balance this year again, but may be slightly less "perfect" about it, which means that there may be more of one gender than the other. There is so much controversy around this issue that I am loathe to continue the tradition, but the weekend's theme will again be Gender Free. Above all, we will play with gender freedom!
We will have Sunderland Hall dorms this year, so many of our dancers will stay in air conditioned comfort.
Ticket Prices for Summer Soirée 2014:
See Registration Details for Prices. The college continues to raise prices slightly every year; we keep this as affordable as we can. Know that it is a labor of love on the part of all organizers.
