Michael French and Barbara Ramlow enjoy teaching cross step waltzing to contra dancers and sharing with them free flowing moves that feel great with slower waltzes.

In our workshops, we focus on connection to the music and making the dance enjoyable for your partner.

Malcolm & Nils Song Kitchen


Way back at the turn of the millennium Nils Fredland and his sub bass voice held up the low end of Malcolm Dalglish’s Ooolites vocal group. Coming together now for the first time since those days, Malcolm & Nils will teach songs featuring the nature poetry of Kentucky writer, Wendell Berry as well as a good mix of learn by ear “songs to go;” rounds, marches, and some South African group songs.

The singing workshop and Malcolm & David Gulyas' concert are FREE for weekend attendees.
The general public is invited to attend the 1-3 pm workshop and the 7 pm concert for a suggested donation of $10 for each of them.
Both of these events will be in the Sanctuary. Malcolm will have CDs available for purchase.
