This is my last month of mostly-hibernation! As of September 24th, I will once more be taking residency in Moscow (Russia, not Idaho) and doing my teaching primarily there and elsewhere in Europe for eight months, with occasional brief excursions to the USA for special events.
In the three weeks before I leave, I'll be in Chicago for a ball, the Boston area to DJ blues, and home in Connecticut for an informal Regency dance. I'll also be in and out of New York City a couple of times. Catch me if you can!

Country dance ball for Oak Park English Country Dance (Facebook event)
7:00-10:00pm. Ball to be held in the beautiful historical ballroom of Oak Park's Nineteenth Century Club with fabulous live music by Scottish-Baroque duo Tim MacDonald and Jeremy Ward. Program will be drawn from the dances of the Lowe brothers, nineteenth-century Scottish dance masters, one of whom was the teacher of Queen Victoria's children.
