Contra Dance Calling Log

Update 1/1/2019: This post is no longer maintained and now well out of date as I’ve been calling and leading dancing regularly for over a decade now. I lead contra dances at regular series about New England and also in several other states. I also do special events/festivals and private Barn Dance events for schools, scouting groups, churches, social groups, etc. Please see my calling page for more information.

Fezziwig’s Ball

SB and I had the opportunity to attend this Commonwealth Vintage Dancers’ event held in the historic Old Town Hall in Salem, MA.

While we couldn’t even be classed in the same league with many of the attendees for their garb, I think we looked pretty spiffy nonetheless! Quite an event, sadly curtailed due to a snow emergency’s parking ban that evening. There was an individual playing the part of Fezziwig that was outstanding. The venue was nice and the opportunity to stroll the streets of the historic area singing Christmas carols while in a crowd festooned with such frills was a treat.
