Dance Like Jane Austen (in Binghamton)
There is a wonderful opportunity for dance classes this fall that ties in with our November 6 meeting in Binghamton regarding dance in Jane Austen’s novels.
The Binghamton English Country Dancers will be offering English Country Dance classes beginning this Wednesday, September 29, 2010. The series of 8 Wednesdays starts Sept. 29, 7:30-9:30 p.m. (beginner session at 7) at Christ Church, corner Water and Henry Streets (about 2 blocks from RiverRead Bookstore). $25 for all 8 classes. Callers are Cheryl Spiese and Terry Glasspool. Live music by Greenwood. Beginners welcome. Call Lee Shepherd for more information at (607) 722-9327.
Binghamton Janeites and country dancers are very lucky to have live music for dance classes as most dance classes are conducted with recorded music. You may remember Cheryl Spiese and Charlene Thomson of Greenwood from our last Jane Austen meeting in Binghamton on April 10th of this year. They gave a lovely mini-concert of traditional dance tunes and recently composed music inspired by a dance trip to England.
