This is an archive of the 2012 Mad Robin Ball web site. To learn about the upcoming Mad Robin Ball, see our current ball page.

Join us on June 9, 2012, for the eleventh Mad Robin Ball in the elegant Hermann Sons Hall in Petaluma, California. This year's dancing master is Sam Weiler, a formerly local caller whom we have missed greatly since he left us a few years ago to move North and then East. Our band this year includes local favorites Shira Kammen and Charlie Hancock, as well as the always surprising Wayne Hankin. As is our custom, we'll follow the Saturday afternoon workshop and evening ball with a Sunday potluck brunch and special Sebastopol dance to make it a full weekend of fun.

Mad Robin is an English Country Dance Ball organized by the English dance group in Sebastopol, founded by Lydee Scudder and sponsored by the North Bay Country Dance Society. A chance to dress up, meet new dancers, explore Sonoma County and dance to wonderful live music in a grand old ballroom. We hope to see you at the next Mad Robin Ball!
