Great Dances, Great Crowd, Great Music!

Our Annual Petaluma Spring Folk Dance Party was a big success! Over 75 dancers came from as far north as Napa and as far south as Watsonville to dance to old and new recorded favorites as well as fabulous live Balkan music by Staro Vino:

Wonderful selection of music from Greece, Bulgaria, and Macedonia with Peter Bonos on trumpet, Greg Jenkins on clarinet, Andrew Cohen on accordion, and Mark Jenkins on percussion:

Summer dancing in Petaluma starts up on Monday, June 1, 7-9:15 p.m., and runs through August 1 at Hermann Sons Hall, 860 Western Avenue, Petaluma. My College of Marin class is taking a break for the summer, but you can dip into Israeli dancing at the Osher JCC, 200 N. Pedro Road, San Rafael on Thursdays 1:30-4 p.m. through mid-July. Newcomers, drop-ins, all ages, beginners through advanced dancers always welcome!
