The Second Chance Square Dance 7 p.m. Friday, April 18th at the Linen Building 1402 W. Grove St. in Downtown Boise's Linen District $7. All ages, full bar (I.D. required). Plenty of free, off-street parking is available at the Linen Building. Modeled after the popular Hokum Hoedown and featuring many familiar faces, the Second Chance Square Dance is a modern take on the old-time hootenanny featuring the infectious swing of an authentic acoustic string band. Providing music for the dance will be the Second Chance Band (Dave Daley, Tate Mason, Jamie Drysdale, and Jim Williams). At each dance, a live band performs a diverse assortment of traditional folk-dance and string-band tunes while a cast of colorful callers directs the dances. In addition to square dancing, the event features some good old-fashioned, swingin', two-steppin' western dancing. Young and old, couples and families, tattooed hipsters and ten-gallon cowboys ... the Second Chance Square Dance is a come-as-you-are, hand-clappin' hootenanny for all.

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.
