The 2008 Music City Masquerade has a decidedly Northern flavor, as we feature the dynamic Quebecois band, Tidal Wave (in French, Raz-de-Maree), fast becoming one of the premiere contra dance bands in North America.

Benoit Bourque, also from Quebec, will be on staff to teach step-dancing and Quebecois social dances. Benoit is known throughout the world for his infectious charm and delightful teaching.

From a bit farther south (Boston, MA) Sue Rosen will treat us to her fun mix of contra dances, including some of her own devising, and she’ll offer an insightful workshop on contra choreography, sharing with us the ingredients for a great dance and how to put them together.

Nashville is home to so many great bands and callers. Among those, on staff this year will be caller Susan Kevra, fiddler David Coe and guitarist Owen Morrison.

In addition to all the great dancing, don’t miss out on music and singing workshops. All the fun happens at the Cohn Adult Learning Center in Nashville. Dance in our spectacularly decorated hall on an exceptional hard wood floor with one of the friendliest dance groups in the country.
