Dancing with the GODS 2018 – Feb 23 – 25

Save the date for Dancing with the GODS 2018!

Feb 23 – 25, 2018 at the beautiful Thelma Boltin Center in the historic Duck Pond neighborhood of Gainesville FL.


The Moving Violations “revolutionized the New England dance scene by playing traditional tunes in strange and wonderful ways.” (Sing Out magazine) The Moving Violations features Van Kaynor on fiddle, Ron Grosslein on fiddle and mandolin, and Eric Eid-Reiner on piano.

The Figments incorporate an eclectic mix of styles into their inspired performances of music for dancing or listening. Whether grooving on an Old-time, Irish or French Canadian fiddle tune, trading daring improvisations on a gypsy jazz or swing number, or exploring the nuances of a graceful waltz or elegant English country dance tune, this trio of versatile musicians makes dynamic, spontaneous, and electrifying music. The Figments features Owen Morrison on guitar, Ethan Hazzard-Watkins on fiddle and Anna Patton on clarinet.

Registration will open sometime in September 2017.
