Dance Leader: Jenny Beer
Beer is a lively, engaging caller whose goal is to make everyone happy
-- the hardcore dancers, the musicians, the now-and-then dancers,
those with high energy, and those who are feeling less spry, the ones
eager to learn new dances, the ones who love old favorites.
Beer hails from the lively dance community in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, and recently served two terms as the Vice President of the CDSS
board. She teaches English Country Dance regularly, Scottish Country
Dance irregularly, and occasionally plays piano for local dance events.
creates new dances from time to time, and a few of them will be on our
Ball program. She last visited Victoria as part of the Country Dance
and Song Society board meeting, and is delighted to have another chance
to dance with us again!
