The Winter Solabration is a community celebration of Christmas and Solstice customs.  Dancers, singers, musicians, actors, and other performers participate in bringing in the new year at the time of the Winter Solstice — the year's longest night.  Other participants, besides buying a ticket to help cover the cost of the event, bring a snack or dessert potluck to share.  We encourage everyone to participate in community singing and dancing.  The dancing consists primarily of traditional American community dances, all of which are taught and walked through so that all who wish to may join in.  This year's revelry features a mummer's play, English rapper sword with the Solstice Sword Dancers, Morris dance performances by the Maroon Bells Morris and Breathless in Berthoud, along with a special dance exhibition by the Postoley Dance Ensemble.  The evening begins with wassail and caroling, Bryan Connolly Extreme Juggling, storyteller Susan Marie Frontczak, and concludes with a performance of the mysterious Abbot's Bromley Horn Dance.

Traditional American Community dances are the contras, squares, and circle dances which have been a part of our American heritage for the past 200 years.  They are easy to learn, and we encourage everyone to participate. Able instruction will be provided by Chris Kermiet, your caller and M.C., along with guest callers Pat Tognoni, and Tina Fields.  High energy dance music will be supplied by Rodney Sauer, Joel Hayes, and Ed Secor.

There will be balloon magic and juggling during the evening for the kids.  We encourage you to bring your kids, however, parents must be responsible for their children's behavior.  We want to provide entertainment suitable for the whole family.  If your child needs a baby-sitter though, please leave the child at home with one, or bring one with you.
