Fly’N Squares is now into week 8 of our 2018 dance series with Montreal super caller Corry Lowden.
Everyone is learning well as Corry is such a great teacher. You will not be allowed to make a mistake! Some even have left visiting relatives back home to come dance as they enjoy it so much. Come see for yourself.
We are once again offering 10 workshop/dances to have fun and polish our Plus, A1 and A2 with Corry Lowden starting May 17, 2018 through July 19, 2018. The schedule will start on Thursdays with potluck at 5 pm, lessons from 6 to 7, and dancing from 7 to 9. All raved about how much they loved dancing and learning with Corry. Remember that square dancing is more then just fun and good exercise it is also good for our minds. According to THE WISDOM PARADOX by Elkhonon Goldberg Ph. D., neuropsychologist, “you can increase your brain longevity by exercising your brain.” Where ever you are in these levels, Corry and helpers will review and add to your skills.
It will be in our airport dance hall, where there are beautiful views from all windows and a flexible hardwood floor to save your knees. Some people loved the potlucks from 5 to 6 as a time for socializing and exploring around our farm. Various farm products are for sale in season too.
During the class from 6 to 7 there will be helpers to easily and immediately get the moves right. People are encouraged to bring snacks. Water provided. Download flyer: ADVANCED-dancing-flyer-2018-with-watermark
In 2008 we talked to Corry Lowden, the fun, fast and clever square dance caller from Montreal, about having a dance in the workshop of our new hanger building. He stopped by to see the location up on our hill. It has great views. He loved the idea, and agreed to have a dance that summer. This was the start of the Fly’N Squares. We have dances in the summer with pot lucks at noon, and tours of the garden and orchard as well as the door prize of a short flight around the area. Longer flight are possible for a small fee. Contact us for self contained camping possibilities.
We hosted the Hands Across the Border square dance where the dancers cross the US/Canada border while dancing, but due to lack of enough interest, it is cancelled. A few years ago Ted Lizotte wound up calling in the Library all by himself to everyone else in the church hall remotely about 600 feet away. Everyone had already danced back and forth across the US/Canada international border tape on the floor and were dancing in the more spacious church hall. It was the first in the world I know about and proving remote calling is a possibility. A caller can be anywhere and skype call to any other group in the world with high speed internet.
