2019 Oak Dance Newcomers Meeting

This is the morning teaching session for new comers to the dance.  It covers many important things to know in preparation for the dance. It is highly recommended not just for newcomers but for others as well since it likely contains information you missed in the past. You also might want to have a copy of the booklet handy as you watch and note where additional information on various topics is located in the booklet. Below are time marks for the topics discussed so you can jump to a specific part if needed.
