Don't Miss this Special Event!

English Country Dancers and Dance Leaders, save these dates! Fried de Metz Herman is bringing her marvelous dances and unique teaching style to the 2nd Fried-for-All Northwest, Friday-Sunday, June 16-18, 2006, in Seattle, WA. Join us for an exciting weekend of English country dance and music led by one of the great teachers and dance devisers of our time. We will dance at two Seattle locations: Friday evening at the Lake City Community Center, 12531 28th Ave NE, and Saturday-Sunday at the Polish Home, 1714 – 18th Ave., on Capitol Hill.

Fried de Metz Herman is a legend in English Country Dancing. Her last visit to the Pacific Northwest in 1996 attracted visitors from across the country for a weekend of intense dancing and learning. Especially for the FFA-NW 2006, Fried will lead a round-table discussion for dance leaders, including programming, choreography, and teaching style. All are welcome to attend this session. Bring pencils and paper! Concurrently, there will be a closing dance, led by New York-area dance leader Paul Ross, who has studied with Fried for many years. Musical accompaniment for the weekend will be drawn from the fabulous talent in Seattle and anchored by Anita Anderson, Dave Bartley and Sande Gillette. Among the dances Fried will be teaching are her own recent “classics”:

  • At Rainbow’s End
  • Norbury Park
  • Ponderosa Pine
  • Circle Sarabande
  • Time for A Little Something
