THE RETIREMENT OF MARSHALL AND GRACE as organizers of the New Haven ENGLISH DANCE HAS LEFT OUR COMMUNITY bereft of the opportunity to engage regularly in this activity we so love.

Some of us have decided to attempt to restart a regular english dance series in new haven.  Paul Mcguire has agreed to continue to be the caller.

if you are interested in being a part of ongoing English dancing in new haven, please contact Susan Leff at 203 264-0870, or by email etdavis4@netzero.net.  if there is enough interest to make this economically feasible, we will work on finding suitable location.
