    Andy and I had a great time (connecting with Fred and Mark, whom we know from the English & Scottish Country Dancing Meetup), and look forward to the next event, however we cannot make the picnic next week as we already are committed with other events.

    Lovely evening of dancing to wonderful music and calling, complete with beautiful sunset, close-up view of the sailing vessel, cannon salute, and great company. And money raised for 2 good causes. A success all around, I'd say.

      Hi Lucie -- TCDC single membership is $15 for the year. This gets you $2.00 off every TRADIN' dance and helps support the Tidewater Dance Community (insurance and such).
