For April, we're going all local! Gabe Popkin, one of the DC Square Dance founders, will be calling his distinctive mix of fun dances that anyone can learn quickly and enjoy. Joining him will be one of the DC area's best traditional bands, the Sligo Creek Stompers! That's Chris Ousley and Jess Myhre of the Bumper Jacksons joined by Sarah Foard and Adrian "Clamp" Erlinger. Check 'em out at https://sligocreekstompers.bandcamp.com/
As always, all are welcome – young and old, brand new and experienced dancers. No partner, lessons, overalls or frilly dress needed. Just walk in and dance!
Doors at 8:00 pm; dancing 8:30 to 11:30 pm.
Admission is $5 cash or check. Sorry, no credit cards. Snacks and drinks to share are welcomed. Water bottles encouraged.
Folks outside the neighborhood, consider biking or taking the Metro! Saint Stephens is a short walk from the Columbia Heights station on the green/yellow lines. For drivers, there is some street parking and a garage below the shopping mall on Park Rd. at 14th St.

The DC Square Dance Collective is seeking new members to help organize dances! Only requirements are an infectious enthusiasm for square dancing and ability to attend most dances and occasional meetings. We're especially looking for people to help with communications, publicity, graphic design and social media. If you're interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to one of us at the next dance!
This dance is sponsored by the Folklore Society of Greater Washington.
