Halloween Party Social Dancing with Andy

Thu 10/31, 6:30-9:30 pm. Come out for a Halloween Party with social dancing. Costumes welcome, not required. All levels. No partner needed. Refreshments provided. You can bring refreshments as long as they are kosher. If packaged, they must have a kosher marking like a K or OU. Fresh produce is fine. No meat. Dance format and type of music to be determined by who is there. Our typical format is different dances each hour, with just enough instruction to keep you moving. We rotate partners each song, so everyone dances with everyone, and everyone of the same gender role dances the same amount. Rotating is not required. For the party, I am thinking about trying something a little different, playing one or two types of songs each half hour or 45 minutes. Depending on how many people are there, possibly per rotation, so everyone gets to dance each type of song with each person. If by the half hour, tentative schedule might be something like: 6:30 ...
