Coming Events

Coming events have been divided into two sections. The first, immediately below, contains New Haven Branch events. The second section contains events sponsored by other groups.


Tuesday, February 25    Party in New Haven  7:00 to 10:00 pm
The New Haven class has the extraordinary good fortune to be hosting two musicians visiting from France. One of them is Keith Smith, who, with Muriel Johnstone, has published a number of excellent Scottish dance CDs. Because of this unusual opportunity, we have reserved the large central hall at our usual dance location, Whitneyville Cultural Commons, 1253 Whitney Ave., Hamden, CT. We are extending an invitation to everyone in the Branch (and beyond) to attend.
The fee for the evening will be $10 per person.  There will be potluck refreshments.
