Join us on June 9, 2018, for the seventeenth annual Mad Robin Ball in the elegant Hermann Sons Hall in Petaluma, California. This year we are delighted to feature our own leader, Kalia Kliban, as our dancing mistress. Kalia is very excited to bring in the renowned duo Foxfire (Karen Axelrod and Daron Douglas) to play for us. 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 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!
