TW folks: You should correct her name in the headline :-)
Worth attending, one of the better shows I have seen in Tucson in ages.
Don't miss this!!!
there was a misprint, "Every Wed and Fri unless weather or holidays prevent it"
is actually every Monday and Friday. Wednesdays are actually our advanced scrimmage nights, but everyone is welcome to come watch!
Great fun, but the sound on the main stage was way too loud to enjoy for the final performance.

Visited this artist in Bisbee and he is RUDE...just flat-out RUDE!!! I have never experienced anything quite like this self-important goofball!
Among the FREE workshops being offered are:
Playing for Dances w/ Jaige & Adam
Exploring the basics of providing music for a contra dance. How to select appropriate repertoire; understanding the musical structure and how it relates to the dance; interacting with the caller; and learning the language of contra dance choreography. Bring your instruments!
Appalachian Flatfooting w/ Matthew
Part of a broad spectrum of overlapping traditions which includes tap, swing, and Charleston, Appalachian flatfooting and clogging are a blend of European, West African, and American Indian dances. While tap is often associated with jazz, clogging and flatfooting have close ties to Appalachian old time music. Exploring the highly improvisational nature of these traditions, we will draw from both clogging and flatfooting vocabulary and examine the places where these forms intersect and overlap. We will explore phrasing, musicality and economy of motion to acquire a solid foundation of rhythmic building blocks. A great class for students of any level; from beginners who want fast-paced steps and improv drills, to advanced dancers who want to hone their technique, facility and repertoire. No previous experience necessary. Leather-soled shoes are recommended but not required.
Body Rhythms w/ Matthew
Many vernacular dance forms have a tradition in which the human body is the primary instrument. Matthew’s style of body percussion is inspired by hambone, new “body music” ensembles like Stomp and Brazil-based Barbatuques, African-American stepping and other dance traditions. Students will explore polyrhythmic patterns of clapping, snapping, and stepping, in which a focus on musicality makes for a delicious musical movement-experience. A great class for students of any level from beginners to advanced dancers.
Melody Playing for Dances w/ Jaige & Adam
Discover why some tunes work better for contra than others and learn how to reconstruct melodies to make them dance-friendly. The scope of this workshop also includes creating “sets”, evaluating how well two tunes go together in a medley and navigating segues; the responsibilities of a melody player; counter-melodies and harmonies. All instruments welcome.
Laying the Groove w/ Adam and Matthew
Every instrument is a rhythm instrument. This workshop presents exercises and examples to develop solid foundational support for dance music. Topics include matching the pulse to the characteristics of the dance choreography, “swinging” the beat, considering tempo, and discovering the “groove” in both melody and back-up patterns. All instruments welcome!
Allowing Movement w/ Jaige
This workshop presents an opportunity to explore habitual movement and response patterns in a fun and enlightening way... learn how to undo unnecessary tension and encourage a lightness of being that allows movement to happen without the effort, fatigue or pain we so commonly become accustomed to. Discover a graceful ease of mobility and experience greater freedom.
