A Weekend with AmarillisJune 19-21, 2009
Amarillis: Three talented women who play dance music in a variety of styles: for New England contras, English country dances, and waltzes and other couple dances. Allison Thompson is a musician, folk-dancer and historian of the dance. She started English country-dancing in the mid-seventies and has been dancing, teaching and playing for dances ever since. She was foreman/squire for the Iron Rose Garland Dance Team and the Iron City Morris. Allison plays concertina, recorders and accordions with the multi-faceted trio, Amarillis, which plays for contra, English and Vintage dances. Karen Millyard has been leading English Country Dances for years. She is a choreographer, researcher, consultant and professional dance teacher who works in theatre, television, schools and the community.
