It’s time to Taci e Balla — shut up and dance!
The Canton of Whyt Whey invites you to join us in rehearsing our steps as we anticipate the spring ball season.
On Sunday, February 19, at 3 PM, we will gather at a local dance studio, Bridge For Dance, 2726 Broadway, between 104th and 105th Streets, in studio 2 on the 3rd floor. (This is the east side of Broadway, upstairs from the McDonalds, just a minute’s walk from the #1 train at 103rd Street.)
We have the dance studio rented for just one hour, so arrive a few minutes early and be ready to dance!
As with traditional country dances of 15th C England, we begin with bransles: double, single, Cassandre & Pinagay. If you can step to your left and to your right, and sometimes do a little kick in the air, you are ready to rumba! Er, I mean bransle! (Pronounced brawl, and can indeed become quite lively.)
There are nearby cafes to which we can repair after dancing, should we wish to socialize before parting.
Accessibility note: this site is NOT accessible. There are 3 flights of 13, 10 & 18 steps to the studio. The banister is sturdy, if you are able to haul yourself.
All are welcome to join us. No Society membership or previous experience required. Modern attire. Feel free to RSVP or just show up.
