Workshop with Ira Weisburd – 2012 Oct 20

It was a beautiful day and we had an awesome time at our Wine Country Line Dances Workshop with Ira Weisburd. Dancers from all over the Bay Area, as far north as Mt. Shasta area, as far south as Morgan Hill area and, beyond California, as far east as New York, attended this fun afternoon. We had about 100 people attending, so there were a lot of people to meet and new friends to be made.

People of all ages enjoyed learning Ira’s dances both the old and the new ones. We had the most fun dancing the Chi Balla mixer dance. Luckily there was plenty of room to dance and plenty of refreshments and water to keep our energy up.
Dancers appreciated Ira’s calm, soothing voice and his easy teaching style to match. In addition Ira’s wife Diane was also on the dance floor so we could watch and follow her as we turned to the back or side walls. And throughout the afternoon we even had time to take photos with Ira.

Many, many thanks to all who helped make this event successful from our sponsors to people bringing food and lending a hand. Many thanks, too, to the instructors who helped promote the workshop and brought their students with them with a special mention to Evelyn Khinoo, our Bay Area instructor and choreographer who, along with Denny, has done so much to promote line dancing and line dance events in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Thank you Ira for doing a workshop with us and thank you dancers for making this such a fun event.
