The woodshed series lets for callers (or would-be callers) and
musicians (or would-be musicians) try out new (or new-to-them) material.
Callers present dances - typically English or contra - and ask the dancers
for feedback on particular or general points. When not calling, they also
dance. In addition to some experienced dance musicians, the
band is open (best for players who can sight-read or learn by ear quickly
and play up to dance tempo). BACDS donates the rental expense because this
serves a valuable function, so everybody gets in free. This is a working session, and dance
geeks enjoy it very much. There's a high proportion of discussion and
experimenting to try things different ways. This is a great opportunity
to see works-in-progress and influence old and new dance (re)creations.
