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 have orchestrated a weekend of elegant and rowdy dances, skills improvement, and deep pleasure.

Join us for 2 days and 2 nights of sublime dancing in the redwoods. We'll have English country dancing, contra, border morris, longsword, workshops for musicians, singers, callers and choreographers, a noisy auction, a silent auction, late night jams and silliness, and some of the best company you can have on the dance floor!

Our dance teachers are Gary Roodman, Chris Ricciotti, Joanna Reiner, Judy Erickson, Julie James, Kalia Kliban, and Sharon Green,

Our musical staff includes Jon Berger, Noel Cragg, Charlie Hancock, Erik Ievins, Shira Kammen, Rebecca King, Michelle Levy, Jim Oakden and Judy Linsenberg
