Southern Pacific Sessions is proud to present its first SQUARE DANCE right in the heart of North Park at Verbatim Books. All ages and experience levels welcome! Suggested Donation $10
All dances taught from scratch and all moves prompted – no experience necessary. Live music from the Clinton Davis String Band. Robin Fischer (Berkeley, CA) calls the dances. It’s an old time dance party! Bring a friend or, two, or ten! Or come alone and make new ones!
Robin Fischer is a square dance caller, dance organizer, musician, and in-demand fiddle teacher based in Berkeley, CA. She loves calling for both new and experienced dancers, and has lead dances everywhere from big festival events (Berkeley Old Time Music Convention, Los Angeles Old Time Social, Parkfield Bluegrass Festival), to local community dances, to unsuspecting crowds in bars, to parking lots at midnight at music festivals, and anywhere else live fiddle and banjo music happens to be.
She is a regular caller and organizer of the Friday square dances in North Oakland, and also calls at parties, family dances, weddings, music camps/festivals, and of course big ol’ community dances! Robin loves how equalizing traditional square dancing is – no levels, no prerecorded music, no costumes, just a good old-fashioned dance party.
