People already involved in the plan to make a video or who want to watch the process but not be in the video, show up at 7:30. Regular Woodshed stuff after 8:15.
Special schedule for this Woodshed only: - The first ~45 minutes or so of the evening will go to prepping and taping "Tango in Toronto" demo video; cast is already chosen. The remaining ~75 minutes will be typical Woodshed activities - trying out choreographies (new ones or new to the caller).
The first of three open workshops hosted by Berkeley Morris. Free, open to all, outdoors at Memorial Park in Albany at 7:30pm. This week Talitha and Julia will be teaching dances from the Fieldtown tradition.

When there are five Fridays in the month, the Palo Alto ECD series now includes an Advanced Dance.
These are dance parties for experienced dancers. Instruction will be streamlined (familiar dances will be walked-through, not carefully taught), and their programs can include some more complicated dances than are usually seen at our 1st Friday, Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Sundays ECD series. There will be only a few new or complex dances on each 5th Friday evening, however - we're aiming for minimal teaching for maximum dance time.
We expect dancers attending these sessions to be unfazed by heys in different orientations, dolphin heys, double figure 8s, Mad Robin figures, etc. They may encounter double progression dances and triple minors, or sets in different configurations. Dancers should also be able to maintain their sense of orientation within the set.
(This is not the time to bring your friends who are new to English country dancing, although we'd love to see them at other BACDS dance events.)
