This is an archive of the 2008 Mad Robin Ball web site. To learn about the upcoming Mad Robin Ball, see our current ball page.

Mad Robin flies for the seventh time on June 14, 2008, in the elegant Hermann Sons Hall in Petaluma, California. We are thrilled to welcome dancing master Joseph Pimentel from Houston, Texas. We look forward to Joseph's diverse program and enthusiastic, precise teaching at the workshop, ball, and Sunday Sebastopol dance. The band will feature long-time local favorites Chuck Ward, Stan Kramer, and Susan Kramer, along with a dynamic recent arrival, cellist Erik Ievins. We return once again to the elegant Hermann Sons Hall in Petaluma for the Saturday afternoon workshop and evening ball.

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. We hope to see you at the next Mad Robin Ball!
