Summer Soirée 2016 - June 17-19
REGISTRATION Session Number 3 is on! I will reserve a few tickets for one last session this week - TBA. Let me know if you missed today's session and I will be better able to make sure the last session works for you.
Summer Soirée is pleased to announce that the Syncopaths will be gracing the stage at Warren Wilson. We will bring back The Syncopaths from the west coast and Contrazz from the East Coast will be on hand for the first time, with Gaye Fifer and Charlotte Crittenden calling, plus Toss the Possum for waltzes.
Some videos from the dance weekend:
The Disco Late Night Contra Dance Party was a huge success again - all the best disco hits from the 1970s and some great dance tracks from the 1980s. Check out this Fleetwood Mac snippet:
If it gets any better than this, please tell me about it - we will try and make it better.
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? Nope! Not this year or ever again. Role balancing was a success.
Dates, Ticket Prices and Talent for Summer Soirée 2016:
All TBA. The college has not given us our 2016 commitment yet, but the contra dance weekend is usually the 3rd weekend in June. Occasionally, it's the fourth weekend. 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.
Taylor, Summer Soirée Organizer
