At TIFD’s Board meeting in May of this year, I was appointed to serve as Safety Committee Chair. I am excited to be building a framework alongside the Board so that we can effectively respond to the rare cases of injuries and incidents of harassment that occur in large dance groups such as our own.
At the last board meeting held on May 20, 2017, the board approved the rules for several committees, and created a new one that will be developed more during the coming months: the Safety Committee!
Come join us for a milestone 70th Texas Camp, with fantastic dance teachers! Richard Powers will present vintage social dance styles from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, so we can add flair to our one-step, swing, cross-step waltz and more. Cristian Florescu and Sonia Dion will share with us more of their incomparable collection of line, circle and couple folkdances from Romania.
To everyone — whether you attend our camp regularly or whether (and especially!) you have not attended in a while – we hope to see you in November, so we can celebrate this great achievement together and create more wonderful memories!
After an initial appearance as faculty for the 60th Texas Camp in 2007, Cristian Florescu and Sonia Dion have returned to Texas to teach for TIFD. Beginning in 1987 Richard Powers has taught at TIFD’s Texas Camp several times, notably for the 50th Texas Camp celebration. Learn more about why we keep asking these dynamic and knowledgeable teachers back to Texas Camp!
