Country Capers will put a bounce in your step and a smile on your face
From Bainbridge Island, Jane Landstra's fiddling has a natural swing that makes dancing a joy! The Country Capers bring traditional dance music from the Shetland Islands and Scandinavia, all the way to American tunes and Cajun music.
Caller Jean Gorrindo comes to us from California
Jean's strong teaching and musical skills, combined with her musical and rhythmic vocal quality, help her deliver dances that are flowing, challenging, and fun! She has a particular knack for collecting dances with exceptional choreography designed to enhance the connectedness between us all.
Jean heard about the Black Diamond dance, and contacted US to ask for the opportunity to call here! (Usually we have to go seeking callers.) How flattering is that?
Check out our new web page with videos!
We have some introductory contra dance videos from excellent callers. If you have friends who are a little hesitant about trying our dance, show them these videos.
There is also some video of experienced dancers which is a lot of fun to watch.
