Balance and Spin

July 26-28, 2002

In the spirit of Balance and Swim, Reunion, Sugar Hill, and other great community dance weekends, join your musician, caller, and dance friends for a weekend of shared dance bliss and music at beautiful Camp Washington-Carver.

This weekend event will fill the void left since Rich and Charlotte have taken a rest from Balance and Swim. Camp Washington-Carver’s volunteer dance weekend Balance and Spin was a huge success in 2001. It is still the weekend before Dance Week at Augusta and the Appalachian String Band Music Festival. So start your party early and share in the dance magic in the beautiful Old Chestnut Lodge at Camp Washington-Carver.

Balance and Spin is an all-volunteer dance weekend. You provide the music, you provide the callers, you provide the dancing, we all have lotsa fun!


(Please understand that as volunteers, you still must pay at the gate.)
