Music & Dance

The Ridge Way to Dance

Something old, something new
A dance that is chunky,
Then one that is smooth
Another one, funky

Most are in lines,
but sometimes a square
or circles, or triplets
or even in pairs

New dancers, we welcome
I’ll teach you your part
Long timers, surprises
We’ll spring from the start

(If not a surprise,
Then perhaps something rare?
A treasure forgotten
Brought out for fresh air?)

Our goal: to delight you
Just give us a chance
Put on your best smile
And come to the dance.


Looking for a dance caller – no extra background – click here.

Same deal – song leading – you can jump to info about that here.

Audio reinforcement – info about doing sound for dances and other types of (primarily) acoustical musical performance – jump here.

Want to know more about my background in all these “folk” activities? First folk song? Kind, well-intentioned and somewhat clueless parental encouragement? Heros? Maybe, over time, some samples and stuff – read on here.
