    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.

    A fabulous turn-out with folks from Norfolk, Va. Beach, Williamsburg, Richmond and beyond! Great music and excellent calling provided high energy on the dance floor...and the beautiful sunset didn't hurt! WOW! What a night!

    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).
