 Friday Night English Dance Series:  Announcement from Marshall Barron

Dear English country dancers,
After much thought and soul- searching, Grace and I have decided that the Friday night dances at Neighborhood Music School will no longer continue.We have loved playing that great music, and seeing your response to it.
But age and illness have forced our decision.
We wish you all the best, and much happy dancing.

Marshall and Grace
