What a great weekend! Great dance on Saturday. Great performance at the Royal Bean this afternoon. Photographer and friend of the blog, Troy Bennett, was there. We first met in 2003 when Sylvain Piron and Catherine Piron-Paira visited Maine. Troy shared the below pictures with me. Fantastic! Thank you, Troy!
The event was the monthly International Folk Dance at Pownell, Maine (which continues to this very day), led by dance instructor Marie Wendt and my friend Steve Gruverman.
This saturday at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Augusta, Maine, a Bal Folk will take place. The “big band” that I’m a part of, Nouveau Chapeau, will be playing, with Marie Wendt teaching and calling the dances. In April when we did this, we whipped the place into a frenzy. Join us!
