This is an archive of the 2014 Mad Robin Ball web site. To learn about the upcoming Mad Robin Ball, see our current ball page.

Join us on June 14, 2014, for the thirteenth Mad Robin Ball in the elegant Hermann Sons Hall in Petaluma, California. This year's dancing mistress is the renowned choreographer and dance teacher Brooke Friendly. It is our special good fortune to have recruited the band Roguery who has worked extensively with Brooke on many dance events and several recordings. Roguery brings together Seattle musicians Anita Anderson and Dave Bartley with Bay Area musicians Shira Kammen and Jim Oakden. Following the Saturday afternoon workshop and evening ball, we'll continue Sunday with a 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!
