Dance-related activities


Here’s a bit more info for those who will, from a bio written for a recent event:

More than 25 years ago, Nikki first taught herself to call so she and a friend could start a contradance series in Ukiah, California, that is still running. She has performed ECD at NEFFA with the Country Dance Society, Boston Centre, as well as serving as the vice president of the society for 4 years. She continues to help produce the annual Boston Playford Ball, an activity she’s enjoyed for many years. She was a long-time member of the planning committees for the Bay Area (California) Country Dance Society’s summer dance camps at Mendocino, where she has been on staff as an English Week musician, taught ECD during American Week, and run the camp bookstores and auctions. She chaired the CDSS Nominating Committee for 6 years, and in 2009, she ran the bookstore and auctions at 7 different CDSS weeks at Pinewoods Camp in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  She was a member of the CDSS Centennial Steering Committee, helping to plan for CDSS's 100th birthday celebration in 2015, and chair of the Midwest Camp Task Group, which chose the site for a new CDSS dance camp and launched the concept that became Dance, Music & Spice Week at Camp Cavell in Lexington, Michigan.
