It's a Fifth Wednesday Dance Party!

This week we will try to dance as many of the dances from the
list for the Dance Ball and 12th Night as we can. To double your
learning, please consider attending the Thursday evening
Darkwood Dance practice, see times and directions at the end of
this message. 

The beginners dance class will start at 7pm and go to 7:45. One
dance will be taught every week for 4-6 weeks. This week we will
be continuing Fiamma d'Amore. Beginners are welcome to stay
through the usual class from 7:45 to 9pm. 

There are numerous dance events coming up as we move into the
feast season:
** The Duchess's ball at 12th Night:
** The Crosston Dance Ball on Saturday 21January06, no website
yet but it will be held at the Palo Alto Art Center, behind the
main library on Newell Rd.

1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesdays in San Jose 

Dance practice starts about 7:00pm. We normally wear street
clothes, rather than garb, for practice. Clean, soft-soled shoes
or socks are required. We normally break around 9pm for dinner
and rootbeer floats. Feel free to forward this message to people
who ask about dance practice.

Here's the directions that assume you are coming from the north 
for 1st, 3rd, 5th Wednesdays:
Take your favorite route to 85, just south of 87 (Guadalupe).
Take the Blossom hill exit, stay in the left lane. 
Turn left at the bottom of the exit ramp. Stay in the left
Turn left at the second light, Snell, just past the Shell gas
Go for many blocks, turn right on Branham, just before the 76
Turn left at the first light, Park Arcadia. Go straight until
Park Arcadia dead-ends into Park Paxton, turn left. 
Turn right on Park Essex (I think it's the third right). 
Rafael and Elspeth's is the third house is on the right.
Parking is getting a bit tight, you may have to park on Paxton
and walk a block. 

76 Park Essex Pl. San Jose CA 
Directions from Yahoo!Maps are generally reliable, although from
the north it will take you on the 101/Guadalupe/Capitol route.

see you there!

As a service to those who may be interested in dance:

This is your reminder for Darkwood Dance, 1st Thursday
of the month, December 1, 2005. We are in Morgan Hill at the
home of Adriana and Marco.

This is a beginning level dance practice. No previous
experience is necessary. The featured dances for
November/December will be: Danse de Cleves (Hearts and Flowers)
and Grimstock. We will be doing mainly these dances at each
practice for the ensuing two months or until there is sufficient

date changes/cancellations:

Thursday, December 29, 2005 - No practice in Morgan Hill
Thursday, January 5, 2006 - No practice in Morgan Hill

It was decided to have a 2 week hiatus for dance practice to
allow people to enjoy/recover from various holidays, and to let
people prepare for 12th Night.


Practice starts at 7:30 pm and runs to approximately
9:00 pm. We then break for root beer floats and
snacks. In courtesy to those who must go to
work/school early the next day (including our hosts),
we'd like to try to be prompt starting and stopping.
We suggest street clothes, rather than garb, for
practice. Clean, soft-soled shoes are a bonus.
