This (optional) map includes “clickable” links to the those performers for whom the Dance Gypsy knows locations (or has anapproximation based on an educated guess). Clicking on a “dancer pin” takes you to the description of that performer. All performers matching your description (whether or not there is a known location) are included (in alphabetical order) below the map. You may click on a marker or scroll down to those listings without waiting for the map to complete. The back arrow will bring you back to the map.
Note that all locations are approximate — the intent is to aid you in finding nearby performers. At best, they locate the performer’s home town. They cannot be used to find an actual residential address.

Notes: Over 30 years of calling, organizing and leadership experience in traditional dance. Founder of the Lavender Country & Folk Dancers - a community of gender-free dancing around New England and the US. I flow easily between calling conventionally with gender language, and calling gender-free using a variety of methods for groups who prefer this. My specialties are creating a warm and inviting program for getting dancers of all levels, from 1st time dancers, to more experienced crowds, to enjoy coming together for a fun social and recreational evening of traditional dance. I enjoy a lot of different types of dancing so I have a large repertoire to draw from. Though much of my focus is in Contras & Squares, I’ve enjoyed teaching and dancing International Folk dancing, English Country Dancing, Vintage & couple dancing. I also play music for Morris dancing.
