Events: 27th February 2021

Dear Fiddling Frog Friends: As it should come as no surprise to anyone, we have to cancel our dance weekend for February 2021 due to the uncertainties related to the coronavirus. We can’t wait to dance but we want to wait until it’s safer. At this time, we are hopeful for Fiddling Frog 2022 which will be the weekend of February 25-27, 2022. We are in touch with our musicians, callers, and sound person and we are happy that we will have the same line up of The Dam Beavers, Root System, Gaye and Jeremy who we meant to have in 2021. As a special event we are planning a wonderful concert with our fabulous local talent to be held Saturday afternoon February 27, 2021.  We’ll be in touch with more details. In the meantime, there are a number of dance, music and workshops events happening online, mostly on Zoom and Facebook Live. If you would like to stay connected with the dance community and attend some of these events, please check out the CDSS online events calendar at www.cdss.org. Please take care of yourselves and we look forward to seeing you again!— See you on the dance floor! Frannie Marr & Jacqui Grennan Fiddling Frog 2021 organizers

We’ve searched to the ends of southern California and gathered together Audrey Knuth and Ashley Hoyer from Root System and added in Ness Smith-Savedoff from the Dam Beavers. We put them together with LA’s own Jeff Spero to form a Frog band called Rosie and the Ribbiters.  They’ll be playing a special live 90 minute concert on Z00M and Facebook on Saturday February 27 beginning at 2 p.m. P/3 p.m. Mt/4 p.m. C/5 p.m. E. You must PREREGISTER to get your own individual link to the concert. This link can not be shared so be sure to register yourself.   To preregister to be in the online room click on the link here:  https://contradance.link/Frog2021.
