Welcome to High Tea 2019
For the last four years, we've been sold out, so we recommend registering NOW!
Labor Day Weekend August 30 - September 1, 2019
Joanna Reiner Wilkinson
Joanna Reiner Wilkinson is a Philadelphia-based English Country Dance caller known for the clarity of her teaching, and for her dedication to encouraging people to become better dancers. Joanna was one of our very first High Tea callers, and we are simply delighted to have her back.
The band will be our own Martha Edwards on violin, joined by two wonderful players - on violin, Amanda Ramey from Champaign-Urbana (member of Meadowhawk) and on piano, Dave Wiesler from Newark Delaware.
