Summer Soirée 2014 date set for June 13-15th!
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!
Facebook is the fastest way to communicate with contra dancers, so announcements are made there first, and on the website immediately thereafter.
Now that we have our dates, we can start booking bands and callers. Please feel free to add suggestions on the Facebook Page.

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 - in other words, the calls and dances will have an emphasis on gender neutral moves and styles and opportunities to switch and learn new ways to approach the gent and lady roles. Above all, we will play with gender freedom! If a perfect gender balance is important to you, you may not be happy with this year's experiment.
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:
We are still working on the budget - the college continues to raise prices every year; we keep this as affordable as we can. Know that it is a labor of love on the part of all organizers.
