July 4th Weekend

April 27, 2018

July 4th weekend at Pinewoods promises to be one of the best weekends of the year!  We will have English Country Dance with the beautiful calling of Joanna Reiner Wilkinson and Brooke Friendly. Back by popular demand, we will have an English Ceilidh Dance with the talented Laurel Swift all the way from England! There will be Contra dance with the fantastic Quena Crain who is known for her cheerful presence, easy teaching style, and her enjoyably diverse repertoire of dances. Our music this year will come from the dynamic Karen Axelrod, Alex Cumming, Doug Creighton, and Eric Martin as well as the fantastic Contra-dance band Cloud 10, featuring Arthur Davis, Donal Sheets, and Cedar Stanistreet.  This year, we are thrilled to have Judy Erickson back to teach Longsword!  You can join the talented Laurel Swift for both English Clog and Morris – Laurel is an inspiring instigator of creative new projects and performances rooted in the folk arts and has choreographed national touring dance productions for Morris Offspring.  We are thrilled to have Lily Leahy return to us from Ireland to lead Harmony Singing!  Last, but certainly not least, Jamie Beaton and John Mayberry will lead porch singing and Laura Sprung will bring her crafty gifts to share!
