We’re trying a new format for the Wednesday night dance class,
modeled after the beginning fighter practice at Mission College.
A new beginner’s dance class will start at 7pm and go to 7:45.
One dance will be taught every week for 4-6 weeks. We will
continue Black Alman this week. Beginners are welcome to stay
through the usual class from 7:45 to 9pm. The intermediate
section of the class will feature Galliard variations. If you
are interested in more beginner classes, please read down to the
bottom of this mail for details about the Darkwood Dance class
on 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays in Morgan Hill.

On First, Third, and Fifth Wednesdays, dance practice is in San
Jose. On Second and Fourth Wednesdays dance practice is in Menlo

Dance practice starts about 7:00pm. We normally wear street
clothes, rather than garb, for practice. Clean, soft-soled shoes
are a bonus. We normally break around 9pm for dinner and
rootbeer floats. After dinner this week we will attempt some
post-period dances, rotary waltz and the Schomberg Gallop
Quadrille (polka). Feel free to forward this message to people
who ask about dance practice.
Here's the directions that assume you are coming from the north
for 1st, 3rd, 5th Wednesdays:
Take your favorite route to 85, just south of 87 (Guadalupe).
Take the Blossom hill exit, stay in the left lane. 
Turn left at the bottom of the exit ramp. Stay in the left lane.
Turn left at the second light, Snell, just past the Shell gas
Go for many blocks, turn right on Branham, just before the 76
Turn left at the first light, Park Arcadia. Go straight until
Park Arcadia dead-ends into Park Paxton, turn left. 
Turn right on Park Essex (I think it's the third right). 
Rafael and Elspeth's is the third house is on the right. Parking
is getting a bit tight, you may have to park on Paxton and walk
a block.
76 Park Essex Pl. San Jose CA 
Directions from Yahoo!Maps are generally reliable, although from
the north it will take you on the 101/Guadalupe/Capitol route.
See you there,
Crystal of the Westermark
