Come February, there will be BEARS in Florida, Rafter Ringing a'plenty, and a singing Caller – all served up with a heapin' helping of sunshine and Southern hospitality! The Gainesville Oldtime Dance Society is hosting our annual weekend of contra dance with a focus on HOT bands and COOL callers.

WE’D LIKE TO HELP YOU COME TO THE WEEKEND!
The generosity of dancers who have contributed to a “sponsorship” fund has provided a limited number of spaces for dancers who otherwise would not be able to attend the weekend! Both registration fee and some travel funding is available. You can request sponsorship funding for yourself, or you can nominate another dancer. Deadline for applying is Dec 15 and funds and applicants will be notified by Dec 30 of the amount of sponsorship we are able to grant. All are eligible to request funding! And we strongly encourage experienced dancers, age 35 and under dancers, and those who have not yet attended a weekend to apply!
