Description

DANCING LEAVES 2018 is Charlottesville's annual fall contra dance festival, now in its 42nd year! Once again, the fun will take place at the Rockfish Valley Community Center in Nelson County, which features a sweet dance hall feel, spectacular scenery, and food and other vendors on site. We will swirl and twirl to the music of two nationally renowned bands --The Latter Day Lizards and The Morrison Brothers -- and enjoy calling by Lisa Greenleaf and Alexandra Deis-Lauby. We're also pleased to bring back "Rushfest!" by Emily Rush.

We are committed to bringing you top notch dancing while keeping it affordable. Regular full weekend registration is $105 for all dancing, but housing and food are separate (or on your own). We do offer both a $15 Early Bird discount (through September 30) and 50% off "regular" registration for youth (ages 16-30).

Limited half-scholarship volunteer positions are available. Contact our weekend chair Michelle Prosser (cvilleweekendchair@yahoo.com) for more info.

FOOD: There are many local food options for your enjoyment. We do offer an optional gourmet Sunday box lunch from Claudia's Kitchen (one of RVCC's on-site vendors) to eat during the noon Latter Day Lizards concert, and you can register "+ box lunch" for just $15 more. You'll be asked to select from four menu options on the registration form. NOTE: Box lunch orders will only be accepted until Sunday 10/21 at Claudia's request!

PAYMENT: Some have asked for more payment options, and we heard you! We do offer convenient online registration with payment in a single step here on Eventbrite, and we absorb the processing fees for you. But if you prefer to pay directly to us, you can! We'll email your confirmation when payment is received. Please select the registration type "Full weekend, by mail or Paypal," then calculate your total amount due and:

(a) mail a check payable to ACCDSS (address: Dance Weekend Registrar, PO Box 2032, Charlottesville VA 22902), or...

(b) request a PayPal transfer from your account to "treasurer@contracorners.com".

HOUSING: All housing requests are now handled separately by Jim Faruki, our housing coordinator. Please contact Jim (cvillefallfestivalhousing@yahoo.com) to learn more about our group housing options and/or local lodging availability.

QUESTIONS? Feel free to contact registrar Brian Hamshar (cvilleweekendregistrar@yahoo.com) with any questions whatsoever. Visit our Facebook page for additional information about the festival, including the housing options: https://www.facebook.com/DancingLeavesCharlottesville/

AND ONE MORE THING! Sure, you'll dance your heart out all weekend long until 4 pm on Sunday. But if that's not quite enough for you, we understand! Please join us (and Alexandra and the Latter Day Lizards) at our Sunday night potluck & contra dance at Greenwood! It's about 15 minutes away (toward Charlottesville), and the dancing is 6:30-9:30 with separate admission of $12.
