Portland Every Sunday Square Dance

Posted by ScottK on Thursday, June 7, 2012

This past Sunday the Portland Every Sunday Square Dance wrapped up a successful first season with a benefit dance for JOIN.  We had a great time and raised a good chunk of change for a worthy cause.  Here's a video clip from last Sunday's dance:

One thing the dance organizers did this year that was real effective was to recruit a second "band" each week to play in the foyer/bar area so folk saw and heard live music right away as they entered the hall and when they took a break from dancing to visit with friends.  I put "band" in quotes, because these were often just pick-up bands from within the local old time music community.  But it was always a lot of fun and contributed a festival feel to the weekly dance.  Here's a video clip of Caroline Oakley, Pete Leon, and Kevin Sandri playing one of these foyer gigs last December:

The dance is now on hiatus for the summer while everyone fans out for music festivals, barbeques in the park, and vacations.  I'll be heading out to Weiser for a few days on Wednesday.  Hope you all have a great summer!
