Harvest Moon Dance Weekend 2022

Our sixth Harvest Moon Dance Weekend took place on October 7 – 9, 2022, at the beautiful Baker Community Center in St Charles, Illinois. Chicagoland’s premiere English Country Dance event, a full weekend of engaging music and dance, it had been postponed for two years because of the pandemic. The joy of dancing together with regional friends was immense!

We were pleased and excited to host:

Musicians Karen Axelrod and Shira Kammen

Caller Beverly Francis
