The Dance Groove.
The 24th of June this year, I returned home to the DC area from an exhaustive trip to Hawaii (my daughter w/2 small children [husband in the Navy] fell and broke both legs). Figuring I was still on “Hawaii time,” I was comfortable going to the contra dance on Friday night at Glen Echo. Jet lag was kicking in. Saturday night/Sunday morning I managed to get to bed at 2:00 a.m. and slept until 11:10 a.m. Upon awakening I realized I had quite a lot to do in an effort to unpack, get things put away, and try to get back into the east coast time zone.
Something moved me to look at the Glen Echo schedule and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the Avant Gardeners were playing there that day – the Waltz!! There was no question as to what I would do now- – hands down, I was going waltzing! I had never been to a waltz before AND I couldn’t wait to hear the Avant Gardeners play waltz music! It was wonderful!
I hope that you will keep the Avant Gardeners in mind and schedule them as often as possible when the Glen Echo schedule has “TBA” listed for the Sunday afternoon waltzes. They are fabulous!!
Thank you for taking the time to read this, my opinion.
