The 2021 and 2022 RSCDS New Haven Branch Highland Ball Weekends have been cancelled. We hope to be able to hold the ball again in March of 2023.
The last Ball was held on Saturday March 7, 2020 at the West Hartford Town Hall, 50 South Main Street, West Hartford, Connecticut.
On Sunday morning, March 8, there was a Brunch, with more dancing at the Polish National Alliance Park 171 North Plains Industrial Road, Wallingford, CT. The Brunch began at 11:00AM
Wonderful music was provided for both events by Hanneke Cassel, David Knight, and Dave Weisler. The excellence of the music was demonstrated by the large number of dancers who stayed to the very last dance of the Brunch program.
New that year was the provision of heavy appetizers instead of the usual sit-down dinner. The appetizers were delicious and an excellent replacement for the full dinner. Desert was served at the first break and was equally delicious.
