This is an archive of the 2017 Mad Robin Ball web site. To learn about the upcoming Mad Robin Ball, see our current ball page.

Join us on June 10, 2017, for the sixteenth Mad Robin Ball in the elegant Hermann Sons Hall in Petaluma, California. This year we are delighted to welcome Scott Higgs, from Philadelphia, as our dancing master. We look forward to music by Rebecca King, Anne Goess, and Maurette Foster. 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 country dance group in Sebastopol 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!
