Madison Folk Dance Unlimited on Tuesdays

Based in Madison, Wisconsin, our Tuesday Zoom dance parties feature beginning to intermediate dances. We dance from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. CDT. Not Zoom experts, but we do keep the program moving. Currently, just one leader is featured, but as we learn more about Zoom that can change. Those with the expertise are most welcome! We are small, but happy to grow with more people joining us each week. You are most welcome!
Weather permitting. We are an outdoor venue and encourage people to send me their email addresses in advance so I can let them know about cancellations? I do send out a reminder email on Sunday or Monday, and then an update if weather is uncooperative.

Roberto Virtual Israeli Dance Party May 24

Israel FestMessage from Roberto Bagnoli in Italy:
Hi, how are you? Hope this email finds you healthy and safe.
I’d like to share with you some information about my virtual parties.

As most people are settling into self-isolation in the coming weeks, we’ve put together a calendar of virtual events that will keep our Folk Dance Community connected to both the music and the dances we all love and allow us to find new ways to share and be together while still apart.

Next special event will be an Israeli Dance Online Party on Sunday, May 24th starting at 5pm CEST (11am EST and 8am PDT), using the Zoom platform.

Join the next Zoom Meeting to see others taking part and chat: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/3125941469
Meeting ID: 312 594 1469

The Party is free. Please spread the word. Share it with your folk dance friends.
Looking forward to staying in touch and seeing everybody

Roberto

Morristown Virtual dance party Wednesday May 20

Hi Folks!

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.

Link: http://tinyurl.com/MFDparties

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)

REMINDERS:
– You may be prompted to download the Zoom software or an update.
– It might take 10-20 seconds for the Zoom window to start.

– 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 […]
