After many years as a mixed English/American dance camp, Fall Dance Weekend at Monte Toyon became Fall Frolick in 2008, and now focuses primarily on English Country Dance, Display Dance (morris / sword / clog), music and song. Come to Fall Weekend for a weekend of English country dance with world-class callers and musicians, a full and varied Display dance program, fellowship and fun.

Programmer Kalia Kliban and a large committee orchestrated a weekend of elegant and rowdy dances, skills improvement, and deep pleasure.
