Kate Powers and Michael Rivers
Reminder: This is our last dance till September!
Susan Michaels has been calling squares, contras, and family dances for more then 30 years, building community, facilitating joy, and just plain having fun. Susan believes it is in calling in life to teach people how to hold hands in a circle and move to music. She loves all kinds of choreography… but specializes in dance with drive and flow that hold on to the roots of barn dancing but take off in new directions. Susan brings her special brand of dry quirky humor with her to every dance event and has a unique gift for making newcomers, 2 left-footers, and shy persons blossom through dance.
Kate Powers was first introduced to the violin through a scholarship from the Washington Old-Time Fiddlers in 2010. Some of her most recent paths include becoming part of the PC College Jazz Ensemble. Kate enjoys composing and writes much of the music she plays. She teaches herself fiddle and also takes Classical lessons with Ronald Patterson in Seattle.
David Rivers has been playing guitar with Kate at our dance for several years. He studied at Berkeley School of Music and developed stunning guitar skills to keep dancers' feet moving with joy.
There is a workshop at 7:00pm. The dance begins at 7:30. All other dance details are on the "About Our Dance" page on this website.
