Lesson Plan for March 19 - Beginner Class

[Edit: Because of an unexpected influx of a large group of totally new dancers, we didn't dance the program as originally planned. I have updated this entry to reflect the program as danced. The original plan was: Joie de Vivre, 'Allo 'Allo, Asilomar Romantic, Arthur's Seat, Alan J. Smith. The original plan is being reused for March 26th, with substitutions for the dances that we actually danced on the 19th.]

Dance Information:
Rocks at Asilomar State Beach

Asilomar refers to a rocky coast and dune habitat on the Monterey Peninsula, in California. Asilomar State Beach state park includes the Asilomar Conference Grounds, a conference center built in 1913 that is now a National Historic Landmark. The name Asilomar is derived from two Spanish words: "asilo" and "mar", and means "Asylum or refuge by the sea".

Merrill Hall, Asilomar
