Bay Area Country Dance Society

Family Week is a part of and partially funded by the non-profit Bay Area Country Dance Society.

The work to put on Family Week is shared by a volunteer committee of about 15 members who meet monthly throughout the year. Some of the key members for 2024:


Anne Bingham Goess enjoys wearing many hats (and wreaths!). On staff as a fiddler and singer over the years, she is also serving this year as programmer. Anne and her husband Kevin first came to Family Week in 2003 with their son Frank; this year she’ll be joined again by her goddaughter Julia.
