Across the Lake

English Country Dancing on the Vermont Side of Lake Champlain
In Colchester, Vermont (near Burlington)

We hope to see you at our “Across the Lake” English Country Dance event June 14 & 15, 2024 at Elley-Long Music Center in Colchester, VT (near Burlington). The weekend features David Millstone calling to music by Bare Necessities. Registration will open in mid-February. Questions? Contact

IMPORTANT: BEFORE YOU REGISTER … Read all the information under “2024 DETAILS” below, especially the schedule, the COVID-19 safety precautions and requirements, and the lodgings page. The event runs Friday night (welcome dance), Saturday afternoon (a challenging workshop for experienced dancers will be followed by a review session for all), and Saturday evening (dress-up gala). The full weekend will be about $100 (exact price TBD when registration opens), but you can also choose by individual session(s). Currently (as of August 2023) there are no planned activities on Sunday. Once again, we will probably not offer home hospitality, so be sure to first research the cost of hotel and airbnb/vrbo lodgings; special ATL rates/discounts will be available for several hotels. Additionally, our Clothing Sale/Boutique may or may not happen — and we’ll likely ask you to bring goodies (ready-to-serve finger foods) for the evening refreshments.

IMPORTANT FOR CANADIANS: In 2024, we hope to continue with this policy — Canadians can either pay the same numeric amount as other attendees but in Canadian dollars at the door, OR pay in US dollars with a 25% discount to the amount shown in US cash or US funds check.
