More dancing in JP this Saturday:

WHEN: Saturday, March 25, 7:30-10:30 PM
WHO: Caller: Sue Rosen; Music: Bruce Rosen & Friends
WHERE: First Church (U-U) of Jamaica Plain, Centre & Eliot Sts.

We skipped March 11 so you could all go to Beantown Stomp, but we’re back on schedule, and we have the return of longtime friend Sue Rosen as caller, with her pianist husband Bruce along with other musicians (which ones? Come and find out!). Spring is here, and we’ll celebrate by dancing, of course!



Proof of vaccination (including booster, if eligible) is required for admission to the dance. Any one of (1) vaccination card, (2) a photograph of a vaccination card, or (3) a digital record of vaccination is acceptable.

Masks (N95/KN95/KF94 or equivalent commercially produced mask) must be worn (over your mouth and nose) in the hall at all times, except when sipping water. We will have some available in case you forget to bring yours. (Callers and musicians may be maskless while performing.)

Please do not bring snacks to share. Any food you bring for yourself should be eaten outside. We encourage you to bring your own water bottle, but we will have water and cups available.

If you’re not feeling well or have a rash, please stay home.

We always need volunteers to help set up and run the dance. If you’d like to help, contact


Admission is $5.00-$15.00 (sliding scale). Free for children 12 and under.

We're at the First Church Unitarian-Universalist in downtown Jamaica
Plain, on Eliot St. at the corner of Centre St., opposite the monument.

Please bring soft-soled shoes.
Please do not wear perfume, cologne, or other scented products, as some of our dancers are chemically sensitive, and experience discomfort when exposed to these materials.

to Robert Coren,
Update: The musicians performing with Bruce are:

Jonah Sidman, fiddle
Rebecca Bosworth-Clemens, clarinet

As I often say, everything is better with clarinet, so all the more reason to show up!
