Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to announce that the CDSS board will be having their annual meeting in Louisville this year! In honor of that, we’ll be having special dancing and performances throughout the last weekend in January. All the details can be found in the attached flyer and in the Facebook event (no profile necessary to view): https://www.facebook.com/events/1519488561672767/ As a quick note, the flyer has the dates of the Morris dance and Irish Set dance performances flipped. Angleterre will be performing on Friday, and the Irish Set Dancers will be performing on Saturday. Alright, I think that’s it. See you all on the dance floor!
Edit: There seems to be some difficulty getting the flyer uploaded. In the mean time, the Facebook event should have all important information. I’ll try to figure out what’s wrong and get it fixed.
This Saturday, we will be hosting our regular third Saturday Contra dance at the usual place with Turnip the Beet for our band and Bradley Smith for our caller! The dance begins at 8:00 PM after a beginners lesson at 7:30 PM and runs until 11:00 PM. Admission is $8 for over 30s and $5 for under 30s. For any other details that might pop up, see the Facebook event (no account necessary): https://www.facebook.com/events/359555024216979/ See you all on the dance floor!
Tomorrow, we’re going to be having a Techno Contra in place of our regular first Friday dance! Our D.J. will be Louisville local Loren Klingman and our caller will be one of our resident rising stars Josiah Roberts. It is going to be a great time, there will be tons of great music, and it’s a wonderful way to see the folk process at work (evolution of Contra dance and all that). Admission will be a flat $10 since the lighting is a bit more extensive than our usual dances. For any additional details, see the Facebook event (no profile required): https://www.facebook.com/events/881522011866711/ See you all on the dance floor!
Hello everyone, just a quick reminder about a few things. First, Fleur de Lis Fling is THIS weekend, so we will NOT be having our normal third Saturday dance. Instead, we’ll be having a special extend the weekend dance on Monday that’s open to everyone. Our caller will be Gaye Fifer, the band will be Celador, the dance will be from 8:00 PM to 10:30 PM, and the prices will be $5 for under 30s and $8 for over 30s. Ms. Fifer was our caller for last year’s Fling and Celador were our band for one of our first Friday dances back in the Spring. Both are excellent and definitely should not be missed. Also, while the Fling is sold out, there’s always a chance that someone will have to make a last minute ticket sale due to intervening circumstances, and as such anyone who doesn’t have a ticket should keep an eye on our Facebook event page just in case: https://www.facebook.com/events/677338229024368/ On a final note, there is going to be a party at Doug and Angela’s house on Sunday after the final Contra. Everyone’s invited, even if you didn’t make it to the Fling, and Deborah Denenfeld will be leading Irish Set Dancing for all who will while there. It’s great fun, and if you’re looking to experiment with dance forms other than Contra it’s a fantastic place to start. I think that’s everything of note, so I’ll sign off. See you all at Fleur de Lis Fling and/or the Monday dance!
Oh no! It’s happened again and Fleur de Lis Fling has sold out this year! We regret that we can’t offer more space but on Monday November, 17 we will Extend the Weekend for our Monday-night dance. It will feature the band Celador from the weekend and nationally renowned caller Gaye Fifer. You don’t need to register for this dance so if you missed the weekend, then come on Monday to get a taste of what it’s like. For questions, see the Fleur de Lis Fling website at www.loukyfleurfling.org or contact Norm Stewart.
