Saturday, October 24th:

We’re working on scheduling a practice at the place we’re dancing – which is 2nd Avenue downtown, from Burnside to the other side (south side) of the Ankeny Alley/entrance toSaturday Market. I’ll let you know how that shapes up. We’d love to have everyone on hand, checked in, and lined up by 2:45 pm – please plan for that! We hope to have zombie make-up folks on hand, too; will let you know. We dance at 3 pm…. in the streets! I’ll write the day-of schedule out more clearly in an email, in a few days.
All practices are free to the public. We have four different instructors this year, so you’re able to experience a few different styles of learning the dance. [We may have a day-of-the-dance practice, as well.]
