Thread Name: How many Mudcatters are folk dancers
Subject: RE: BS: How many Mudcatters are folk dancers
I contra dance and call for contras, and am developing work doing what I call "American folk dance" in the local schools. Danced Morris briefly (before the group disbanded due to pregnancies/births, including mine, and key members moving away).

When I started dancing in New England in the '70's, international folk dance was part of the mix (and so were squares of course! Sigh!). I briefly checked back into that when I moved to Tucson 10+ years ago, but it's too complicated and I haven't the time now.

There are murmurs of starting English country dancing up here and I might work on playing (concertina and recorder) for that, if it happens. ~ Becky in Tucson (Arizona)
