The inaugural dance for a quarterly series starting up in Julian, CA -- a small tourist town in the San Diego mountains.
The family dance was about an hour long, with Martha Wild leading the community band. It was mostly a tour group of about 30 college students -- very energetic and enthusiastic.
The evening dance was an hour later. It was about 20 people. A half dozen had danced before. The rest were couples that stuck together. Contras where it mattered where the swing ended proved to be very challenging throughout the night. I never bothered with ladies chain.
