An English Country Dance
Twentieth Anniversary Celebration
|Seattle, Washington — May 4-6, 2018|
Bruce Hamilton, Special Caller
Laurie Andres, Music Director
Frank Brown, Sound Engineer
David Millstone fell
in love with English country dance at Pinewoods Camp in 1987; he has been leading
ECD for the past twenty-five years. He is known for clear and concise instructions,
a broad repertoire, a gentle sense of humor, and the ability to pick dances that
offer the right level of challenge for all audiences. A member of the Governing
Board of Country Dance and Song Society from 2002-2008, he served as CDSS President
In addition to leading a local English series in Norwich, Vermont, he has been featured as the English caller at dance weekends in the United States, Canada and Europe, including Belgium, Germany, and Denmark. He has also taught weeklong camps at Brasstown, NC; Hey Days in California; and CDSS camps in all four locations. Over Labor Day 2018, he'll be calling English at Northwest Passage in Oregon.
Bruce Hamilton is a well-respected teacher of English and Scottish
dancing with 45 years' experience. He has launched classes, trained teachers,
coached performing groups and adjudicated festivals.
A retired research scientist, Bruce is always looking for new ways to understand and present ideas. He tries to weave many threads besides technique and choreography into his lessons. Music, sociability and physiology are his current favorites. People often say they come away with things to think about and ways to grow. His weekend teacher's class also draws high praise.
Laurie Andres - Music Director. Laurie has been a musician and caller for over 35 years. He picks the perfect match of musicians for each workshop. We have the best musicians in the Northwest, and Laurie superbly combines them for your dancing pleasure. With this year's combination of caller, musicians, and sound engineer, your dancing experience will be unparalleled.
Frank Brown has been our exemplary sound engineer for the past four years. We are very pleased that he is returning this year.
