The next dance is June 30, 2024

Thanks to Leap Day in February, June is yet another 5 Sunday month so the Last Sunday in June is the 30th, which of course, is 3 weeks after our earlier dance.  Please make a note of it!

 

If you are confident (to the extent that you can be confident) that you will not be spreading (covid, flu, a cold) then you are welcome to join us. Some of us take the added protection of wearing a mask while dancing and that is encouraged.

I am told that not everybody checks their e-mail these days. If you wish to be notified about Louisville ECD activities using another medium, let me know ... well, this is awkward ... let me know via e-mail what alternative vehicle to use to contact you.

Once a year we have a special dance with Keltricity playing. Deborah Denenfeld is calling this dance.
