There are a lot of folkdance parties on the web, via zoom. I hope you’re taking advantage of them.
In case you’re free next Wednesday, I wanted to invite you to a dance party we’re hosting. Randi and I host bimonthly parties on behalf of Morristown (NJ) FolkDancers. We’re doing lots of old and new favorites. Avoid getting rusty!
With help from our Calif friends, our sessions can now accommodate as many as want to join: INVITE YOUR FRIENDS to join our parties!
We’ve optimized our equipment setup, and I promise “great sound” (mostly). If not, you get your money back! You’ll see the dance names and upcoming dances all in the same screen.
Day: Wednesday, May 20
Time: 7:30-10 PM EDT
Recommend joining 10-15 mins early.
Food: Bring a snack to eat (ok, in your own home)
– You may be prompted to download the Zoom software or an update.
– It might take 10-20 seconds for the Zoom window to start.
– You may see: Join Audio. Do that.
– Choose “Speaker View” for most of the evening.
Because of the time required to set up, we recommend joining several mins early: we *start* dancing at 7:30!
Use the highest performance device you have – a laptop, not a phone. That’ll help your video synchrony. Don’t have something else running (downloading netflicks, watching cat videos) – other devices sucking up bandwidth can affect sync.
We’ll have parties every 2 weeks. Put ’em on your calendar!

There will be a little lag between video and sound, the sound won’t be perfect – just keep a SMILE on your face and know you are dancing with the rest of our group and many others across the world.
