Courtesy of Jim Pedder, here is a list of all the dances we have worked on this season, with min-crib sheets, and links to videos.
Here we are with travelling musicians Corinna Rose and Leah Dolgoy, who dropped in looking for some fun. (They were stranded in the Comox Valley because the wind cancelled the ferry to their next gig in Powell River.) They were on a Home Routes house concert tour.
