Replay of Stockton Highlights

Last month, I announced we’ll broadcast special selections from Stockton 2020.  Some segments were so exceptional/insightful/memorable/funny, I wanted to share these with you all.

Broadcasts dates follow.  This is one series you do not want to miss!  Richard Powers is a particularly engaging speaker. These presentations use illustrations drawn from Richard’s private collection of *thousands* of vintage lithographs.  Andy Taylor is a spirited and entertaining speaker whose family had pivotal influence on America’s love affair with folkdance.  Sonia and Cristian are dance teachers and choreographers extraordinaire who have brought many of our most beloved Romanian dances.
