Young Tradition Weekend Dance

Thanks to everyone who attended, danced, played, called, helped out at the dinner and dance at Burlington High School last night (5/3/18), the 1st event for Young Tradition Weekend. We had great representation from all Burlington Elementary Schools, including students and music teachers, families and friends.  Especially proud of the fiddle tunes club members who obviously worked hard on learning the tunes and playing them up to dance speed. Big shout outs to Joe Cleary, Maeve Fairfax and Johanna Taylor for coaching the past 2 months and playing at the dance last night with the fiddle orchestra, Mary Wesley for being the beginning and end of our YTV volunteer crew for the night (plus photographer/videographer), and music teachers Bill Myregaard (IAA), Danielle Hurley (Smith), Kristen Schwerin (SA), Betsy Greene (Champlain) and Betsy Nolan (Edmunds) for making it all possible, and making it all happen, from initial idea to clean up.  Hard to imagine not being motivated to do something similar again next year!  Next trad stop for many of the players is Trad Camp the last week in July.
