||Book 52 Dance Testing
The RSCDS has asked for our help evaluating dances that have been submitted for possible publication in forthcoming book 52. We've been sent a mystery batch to try. Who knows? Among them could be the next branch favorite! You'll only know if you join us and give your feedback. NOTE: Most dances we have been sent are at the intermediate level or above. 7:30pm at Tapestry Folkdance Center.
