“MAKING MAGIC”
taught by nationally-known dance leader Val Medve
AND
A TEA TALK on Music by Rebecca King

Music will be by Rebecca King and Jon Berger
(from the band Persons of Quality) I took one of Val's workshops at a weekend festival and it was wonderful. You won't want to miss her easy-going style and wonderful dance tips!

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE.
Please let us know if you need to cancel so that we may invite any waitlisted friends.

As always our Friendship Fund is available for this event.

PLEASE NOTE:
Attendees are expected to have a basic working knowledge of ECD dance moves. These workshops are paced for dancers who are able to do common moves at ease including heys, triple minors, and half figure-8s. Newer dancers may be asked to sit out more challenging dances to watch and learn.

Both Val Medve and Rebecca King were guests on our
5 Things... Inside the Dancing Mind of... Web Show
You can watch both of their talks, along with many others, here on our: 5 Things Web Show page.

Join us for Historical and English Country dancing.

Love Jane Austen, Bridgerton, The Gilded Age, and other historical movies and events? You will love Tuesday nights in Pasadena where we dance to actual music and dances from history into modern times. This dance style is alive and growing! It is an exciting world of upbeat dances to joyous tunes and also lovely slower moving dances to unexpected music that will surprise and delight.

We welcome beginners to come and experience what this world of balls and tea dances is all about and how much fun it is.

Costumes are not worn to our casual Tuesday night dances. Many, but not all, will wear them when attending our larger weekend events so come as you are comfortable. Love costuming? It’s perfect. Don’t love costuming, no worries! Costumes are not required for any of our events though we love to admire them all.

Come join us on the dance floor, make new friends, get a little exercise mid-week at our Tuesday night dances!

Arrive on time as we jump right into easy dancing.
We will have you up and happily “footing it” in no time at all.


PLEASE NOTE:
> Registration is REQUIRED PRIOR to our dance.<
Until further notice, due to the current health situation, you must be registered to enter the hall and attend our dances.
> Proof of vaccination and masks are REQUIRED.
