tonight! jam starts late after Marcia Siegel talk and reception at Conduit
- Just a reminder to join us at 7:30pm this evening at Conduit to listen
to Marcia Siegel, dance writer and critic, followed by a short
reception and then jam. If you want to skip the talk but come to the
jam, plan to arrive a little later; we will begin dancing when the
reception is over, sometime between 8:30 and 9pm. All attendees at the
reception will be invited to stay and join in, so let's make any
newcomers feel welcome.
hope to see you there!
