      Hello,

      I am a member of Colorado Friends of Old Time Music and Dance, active in
      the English country dancing group. We are trying to get the message out
      about our dance sessions, held in Lakewood (Denver) usually on the last
      Friday evening of every month (except for August).

      As you may already know, English country dancing predates contra, most
      ceili, and square dancing. Many of the earliest English country dances
      were being performed as far back as the Middle Ages - "Rufty Tufty,"
      "Sellenger's Round," "Black Nag," "Merry Merry Milkmaids," "Jenny Pluck
      Pears," etc. The dances were done in village as well as great hall.

      We have a superb indoor space for dancing, a wonderful band, a great
      caller/instructor, and at least a couple dozen friendly dancers of
      novice to experienced levels. We charge about $7 for non-CFOOTMAD
      members, $6 for members. Special clothes, a partner or even previous
      experience are not necessary. Dances start at 7:30 and run to 11 p.m.

      We welcome members of SCA and Renaissance fair groups who would like to
      learn period dancing. English country is also a good alternative for
      those who love the fast-paced contra, Irish or Scottish dancing but find
      it physically taxing.

      Your assistance in getting out this information would be greatly
      appreciated. If anyone would like more details, please tell him or her
      to contact me at (303) 447-8578 (after 9 a.m., please) or by email.
      CFOOTMAD also has a web site with information about these and other
      dances - www.cfootmad.com We also have flyers available for handing out
      and posting.

      Thanks for your time and attention.
