The Summer announcements, for dancing during the week, is up to
you. Let me know of current activities and I'll put them here.

Another pre folk dance party at Joe's. Here is his invitation:

I want to invite all you dancers to a potluck barbeque at my house
in Kalispell on Saturday, August 7th. The get together can start
around 3pm or so, probably eat around 5 or 5:30 or so.
Then go dancing at the Salvation Army gym at about 7.

Alas, no chicken house dancing since I don't have a chicken house.;-)

Those of you coming from out of the area, you can camp in my backyard,
or in my house. I've got lots of room.

Kids, spouses, dogs, and other friendly hanger ons are welcome!

Directions to my house are pretty simple.
Call or email me to let me know if you can come. And also, to try
and coordinate what to bring.

Calgary, November 13 & 14 2004. We will leave Friday afternoon
November 12 to be in Calgary by 7:30pm. At this point the cost
of the work shop will be 50 dollars Canadian funds.

works as a choreographer specializing in Armenian dance. She has taught
classes in International, Dutch and Armenian dance in many countries.
She has published a book on Armenian history, culture, costumes and
dance, and has produced compact discs on her own label. Her choreography
is danced by many professional performing ensembles.
Tineke holds a degree as folk dance instuctor from the Landelijk Centrum
Volksdans and exclusively works as a professional folk dance instructor.

Since 1985 she has regularly visited Armenia to study at the Pedagogic

the USA to observe the dances performed by the Armenian communities there.
