English Country Dancing
The new big thing-English Country Dancing-as seen in Jane Austin novel-type movie adaptations. (Think Thomas Jefferson.) Friend Knigges imported their homeschool cousins from MO for a three day dance workshop this week. Forty-five kids ten-years-old and up learned the calls/moves of traditional English Country Dancing. Daughters L and M took the class and enoyed it very much. On Thursday evening there was a ball, with demonstrations and group participation. The dressing up was such fun! It was a wonderful class and activity that our kids will enjoy for years to come. There is already talk of a fall ball.
