I am so excited about this weekend, because I am calling a contra dance on Saturday, January 15 and then the next day teaching a workshop for all ages at the Old Town Hall.
For those of you who do not know what contra dance is, please check out my Dance page, and also http://www.ottawacontra.ca
I am so impressed with the committee running the contra dances these days. I pretty much attend every dance, I am that geeky about it. I am also a longtime volunteer and sometimes, like this Saturday, I get to be the caller. I have witnessed the development of this community and it is great to see all the new initiatives. For my younger readers, I recommend the youth page on the ottawacontra website. Good deals!
The next day, Sunday, January 16, is an opportunity to bring your whole family, or your favourite niece, or just yourself, for a workshop at the Old Town Hall called Multigenerational Singing for Ourselves. Wouldn’t it be lovely to combine old and young voices together?
This Sunday’s class is a stand-alone workshop but if you like it you can sign up for the 5-week class starting January 30. Details are on my events page. Please register through the Old Ottawa East Community Activities Group in person or through their website. (http://www.ottawaeastcag.ca/)
Come dance and sing with me!
