“5 Things... Inside the Dancing Mind of”
A special focused web chat
with our guest Dave Wiesler
on Exploring Dance Tunes

ONLINE WEB CHAT
Tuesday December 1st ~ 6:00pm pst (9:00pm est)

What makes a good dance tune work?   How does one decode a tune, following its story through changes of mood to the “aha” moment?  And how can this help us become better dancers, musicians, and choreographers?  Please join us Tuesday as celebrated composer/musician Dave Wiesler brings us a new take on “5 Things”: 
EXPLORING DANCE TUNES with DAVE WIESLER.  

5 Things is a 1 hour web chat with leading artists, teachers, and experts from the English Country Dance community across the continent!
