Emerging from my summer hibernation -- how did I get my hibernation season so out of whack? -- I'll be on the road this month for blues in Boston (sadly, this trip has been canceled) and a somewhat random bunch of workshops in San Jose, California, where a non-dance-related trip has turned into something of a busman's holiday!
Thursday-Saturday, August 16-18 ~ San Jose, California
Dance workshops at the 76th Annual World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon76) (Facebook)
I will be conducting workshops on Victorian couple dancing (with a Steampunk focus), historical dances done in trios, and cross-step waltz (beginner level); leading a morning "dancercize" session; DJing a waltz session; and doing a mini-class on hand jive. I'll also be partnering for a basic swing dance workshop. My full schedule is here. Note: these workshops are restricted to day or weekend members of the convention. Please see the Worldcon76 website for information about membership.
Tuesday, August 28th ~ Cambridge, Massachusetts (Boston area)
7:30-11:00pm (lesson then dancing). DJing blues for the second set, 9:45-11:00pm.
Thursday, August 30th ~ Somerville, Massachusetts (Boston area)
7:30-11:00pm (lessons until 9:30 then dancing). I'll be DJing blues from 9:30-10:30.
I am available for private lessons in Connecticut or on my various travels; during the latter, you must provide the dance space. Email me directly if you would like to schedule a private lesson.
