Two Great Contra Weekends

Double your fun with two great Bay Area contra weekends in 2009!

Spring Dance Weekend

The BACDS Spring Dance Weekend for 2009 has a (new) little something for everyone! This year we'll have all-American and all-English dance tracks, with separate Contra and English evening dances. And for the first time ever, swing dance instruction!

Balance the Bay 2009

Save the date (August 14-16) for the second Balance the Bay dance weekend, this time in the cool of summer in San Francisco.

Playford Ball

The 2009 Playford Ball "Imaginary Voyages" features dance mistress Lise Dyckman with music by Shira Kammen, Jim Oakden, Chuck Ward, and Maureen Brennan. Workshops, rehearsals, and after-dance parties accompany the Ball itself.
