updated to reflect this change.
made to "music page" - jams at the Electric Brew
are going dormant for now. Also added generic "donation"
content to the "join" page. "dances"
Updated main dance page with
current fall schedule. Note that our new dance
location, the First United
Methodist Church in Goshen, has a wonderful
springy wood floor for dancing. The space is an old gym small
enough for good acoustics, but big enough
for good dancing. There's easy access to water, restrooms, and parking.
Hooray! Many thanks to Goshen College for letting us use their old gym
for our first three season. Please spread the word about our new
location. See the dance page for more info.
Added the Black Swamp Old-Time Music Festival Schedule

Last dance of the season held at First United
Methodist Church in Goshen. Very nice dance floor and pretty good
acoustics, to boot. Could fit around 72 plus dancers on the floor
relatively comfortably. Stay tuned - this could be a new home for the
Swamp Old-Time Music Festival website added. GO Dancing! is
hosting this site in support of regional folk music and dancing.
Fixed a few broken links and
updated some new addresses.
