We remain optimistic about FootFall 2020, scheduled for Labor Day weekend — early September.

We have three fine bands lined up: Daybreak Trio (Owen Morrison, Naomi Morse and Anna Patton); Hot Coffee Breakdown (Tom Cunningham, Luis De León, and Kate Sanders) and Are We There Yet (Charlie Pilzer, Susan Brandt, Tom Wright, and Tina Chancey). Luke Donforth will be calling contra and Gaye Fifer will be calling English Country Dance.

We hope to open registration by mid-June, a month from now, but much depends on health advisories and updates. Much as all of us want to dance face to face and smile to smile and hand to hand, the advice and recommendations of appropriate authorities will be a significant factor in decision-making.

We expect to share Camp Louise with World Village Music and Dance Camp, as we did last year. All attendees at either event may attend any workshop. FootFall will showcase contra, ECD and more; World Village will feature Eastern and Northern European dance and song.

We wish all of you continued good health. Stay home, stay safe, stay well.
