Building Community Through Dance

I host several large and formal Civil War Balls every year which I enjoy very much, but it is also fun to call dances for smaller, community events as well. Last weekend, I had the opportunity to call a dance for a planned community neighborhood in Paso Robles. The centerpiece of this lovely group of homes is a beautiful Common House where the neighbors share weekly meals and hold special events. The people in this community have a vision for living life together, and in their Common House there is a kitchen, a library and even guest bedrooms where people who are visiting can stay. I had the opportunity to work with a new band of friendly and talented musicians, and we all had a great time.
