Join us on Saturday, July 18, for this month's ECD in Anaheim. Jeff Hunter (and, when she's not dancing, Patty McCollum) will be playing for us as we try out some of the dances on the upcoming Playford to the Present Ball.
You can pre-register for our classes which are part of the Anaheim Parks and Recreation Department by going to this link: https://ezrecconnect.anaheim.net/EZRecConnect/Activities/ActivitiesAdvSearch.net. Click on "dance" and then find "English Country Dance." Follow the directions.
In August we will welcome musicians Bob Altman and Linda Kodira on August 15. And, because Anaheim lets us have a fifth Saturday ECD, we will enjoy the music of Interfolk on August 29.
In 1999 Judee began calling English Country Dances at her elementary school,
where she was a teacher. Then Hal Ramser asked her if she would like to help
bring ECD to Riverside and she agreed to be their caller.
Judee is proud to have taught Andrew Jackson to dance for a History Channel
special. She is frequently asked to be a guest caller, and called for the
Gualala Patriot Days Ball in July 2005. She also taught ECD at the Jane
Austen Society of North America’s AGM in Los Angeles in October 2004 and in
Tucson in 2006.
In September 2005 Judee started the ECD group in Anaheim, Orange County and she has been a regular monthly caller in San Diego. She has
called for the Playford Ball in LA and also for the San Diego May Ball. In 2009 she followed in the footsteps of Elizabeth Bennet and called dances in
Hertfordshire at Brocket Hall, where the 1995 production of Pride and Prejudice was filmed (see photo), in Kent and in Derbyshire.
Judee is a Kindergarten teacher, and is also a regular presenter of dance to the Orange
County music teachers at Orff Schulwerk workshops.
