Here is a video from our July 22nd, 2012 performance of the dance "Jack's Maggot." You will hear Lisa Brown describing the term 'maggot' as meaning "a fanciful or funny" thought, or in this case, dance. 

Here is a video of the first song on the program from Sunday July 22nd, 2012. Donna Della was written by James Hook and arranged by Joyce Donley.

Sewing Workshop

Susanne Marshall and her daughter Christina generously offered to coordinate for the first time a Sewing Workshop where our members could experience making their own dresses. Christina was a long-time member of JASS beginning in 2009. This year she and her mother began to mentor through sewing classes, baking refreshments, and demonstrating Regency hair-styling. We are so grateful to them. Here are some photos from Sewing Workshop:
