Music for listening and dancing: 7:30-9:15
Caller: Ann Fallon
Band: Reelplay (Dave Marcus, concertina & Robbin Marcus, piano)
Known for her smooth and elegant calling style, Ann Fallon demonstrates a depth of experience and love for the music which enhance her programs and her teaching. Her programs combine original compositions with some modified dances, bringing to dancers’ living rooms the flavor of the English dances we know and love.
Reelplay is Dave Marcus, concertina, and Robbin L Marcus on piano (and a bit of percussion). They have been providing playful, elegant and graceful English Country Dance music as part of 'Round Robbin for the last six years. Dancers say: "The live music that Reelplay offers is a real treat ... Such a pleasure to dance to! ... Your music is amazing. You definitely have a unique and danceable sound. ... Michael & All Angels was touching, yet had plenty of forward motion ... Just great!!"
Dave also composes tunes for English Country dances that have been choreographed by creators including Sharon Green, Seth Tepfer, and Don Veino.
Doors open at 7:00 Eastern for socializing and Zoom lesson for those who would like it and social time for those who’ve done it before. Be sure to clear out some dance space in your house, charge your device, and come on down (virtually, of course) to enjoy this dance and community event. Dancing starts at 7:30 with the last waltz at about 9:00, and the hall will remain open for another 15 minutes for chitchat and farewells.
Atlanta DistDance uses gender-free calling.
Please share with your friends near and far! Hope to see you there!
