About our caller and teacher:
Barbara Finney hails from the mother lode of ECD in Boston, Mass., where she worked alongside the great Helene Cornelius for many years. Barbara has a vast repertoire, is a lucid and lively teacher, and has lots of dance camp and dance weekend experience. She is a lovely person and a lovely dancer as well!
Delicious snacks, tea and dessert offered during breaks. Schedule subject to revision.
Come enjoy our warm hospitality, delightful dancing and varied culinary, cultural and shopping opportunities. If you’ve never visited Fairfield, you’re in for a treat!

If you know you are coming, please register today. Thank you! Only $109 before April 1st; $125 before Sept. 1st: $145 late registration if available. Includes full weekend and all snacks.
Note: The weekend always sells out: Please register early to avoid disappointment! This weekend is designed for very experienced dancers and attendance is limited to ensure dance floor comfort.

Please include name, address, phone and email. Apply early! Your cancelled cheque is your receipt -- please do not be disappointed if you do not get an email acknowledgement.
Cancellation / Refund Policy: If you cancel, you can send someone -- a previously unregistered dancer -- in your place to this weekend and let us know about the substitution. You handle all the details and work out the payment with your friend. This applies only to the specific weekend you paid for. We usually sell out, so it is likely there will be other dancers interested in attending. Other than this, unfortunately there are no refunds and you cannot apply your registration to a future event. We simply do not have the volunteer staff to handle these complications.

With our experience hosting over 20 dance weekends so far, we know what dancers care about and are ready to welcome you with open arms. Unfortunately, home hospitality is available only for the band and caller -- we are a very small dance community! Affordable inns and hotels are available within walking distance from the dance (Landmark Inn) with other motels & inns (Best Western, Super 8, Seven Roses Inn, The Raj Resort) and camping grounds 5-10 minutes from the dance. If you are interested in sharing a hotel or motel room with another dancer, please post on our facebook page in the comments section just below the announcement about the weekend: Shared Housing "Comments" Section
(Facebook took away our page dedicated to this, so posting in the comments section is the way to go!)
If the weekend includes the first Friday of the month (in 2013, for instance) then if you come early on Friday you can enjoy the attractions of the Fairfield Art Walk before the dance. Fairfield has an amazing amount to offer our visitors, from the largest community of Stapathya Vedic buildings in North America just north in Vedic City, to the Golden Meditation Domes at Maharishi University of Management to the greener-than-green Eco-Village with its earth-friendly designs and technologies.
