Special Anniversary Celebrations!

Posted on: August 23rd, 2016 5:46 am

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of the Dawn Dance, we have invited Fred Breunig to guest-call “The New Floor’s Revenge”  – a dance he wrote in gratitude after the first Dawn Dance raised enough money to replace the floor at the Chelsea House Folklore Center.  The dance will be called around 9:00pm.   And don’t forget to wear your favorite Dawn Dance T-shirt! After Fred calls we will take a group photo and see how many T-shirts – old and new – we can capture in one shot.

Dancing Gently on the Climate

Posted on: July 22nd, 2016 9:12 pm

In our ongoing efforts to become a carbon neutral event, we are now offering Carbon Offsets as part of the online registration process for Labor Day 2016.  Each donation of 85 cents will help offset about 250 miles of performer and dancer car travel.  We will donate all funds received for this purpose to The Conservation Fund to plant trees that will offset our carbon emissions and fight global warming.
