Dare To Be Square West ~ November 2013

 This last November I went to D2BS West-LA to a weekend of square dance calling and dancing.  These workshop weekends are inspiring, invigorating and pleasantly exhausting.  Here is a video documentary of the weekend and the good folks who helped put it together and inspired it.
I would personally like to thank the Idaho Commission on the Arts for the grant award I received to attend this workshop.
