"Rakes of Rochester" from November, 2011

Try the RetroDance!

Like your grandparents’ barn dance without the barn – old-time squares & reels, maybe a polka or a contra as well. Totally retro – try it! Our first fall dance is

at the Berkeley Community Church, 3701 West 50th Ave in Denver. Chris Kermiet calls with live music!
