Dancers from Juneau, other Alaska communities and the Lower 48 recently celebrated the "20th Annual" Camp D.A.M.P. (Dance and Music Party) event at the Methodist Camp. A big thank you is due to all of the volunteers in the Juneau Contra Dance Community (too numerous to mention) who contribute time, talent, vision and a lot of hard work all year long arranging for guest artists and organizing the weekend event. A special thanks to dance instructor, Pat Belec, for leading a swing workshop on Sunday afternoon. Also, a warm thank you to the following vendors for their generous contributions of complimentary excursions and gifts for our visiting guests artists, the Retrospectacles from Seattle and caller, Gordy Euler, from Portland. Mark Kelley contributed photographic books to gift the artists. We appreciate the tram passes donated by Marlis Mayeda of Mt. Robert's Tramway, use of bicycles from John McConnochie of Cycle Alaska, tours from Alaska Zip Line, and kayaking excursions donated by Becky Janes of Above and Beyond Alaska. We are fortunate to live in a community like Juneau where folks combine efforts to help keep the arts happening. Local vendors are very generous. We hope you will remember to thank them and help support their business.
