Reporting out for SF Bay Area, California:
Money Musk was danced at BACDS Spring Weekend, Monte Toyon, Santa Cruz:
11 am PST: during Tripe Minor Contras workshop with Linda Leslie calling to the music
of The Rhythum Rollers (W.B. Reid, Cathie Whitesides, Bob McQuillen, Laurie Andres)
It was great to learn it in a workshop environment as there were a lot of folks who had
never dances Money Musk, and also more time to explain the history of the dance, etc.
Then, at the evening dance party, we danced it again, with a larger crowd:
10 pm PST: Bob Isaacs calling to the music of The Rhythum Rollers (W.B. Reid, Cathie
Whitesides, Bob McQuillen, Laurie Andres)
Here's a short video of both sessions taken by David Brown:

Money Musk called and danced at the Wescustogo Grange Hall, North Yarmouth, Maine.
First dance after the break - about 10:30pm.
Dancers: Five sets of 6 ccouples - 60 dancers
Band: Perpetual eMotion (Ed Howe & John Cote)
Caller: Chrissy Fowler
Did a workshop before the dance, with about 30 dancers. All were enthusiastic and pleased
to be part of the big event. Much hooting and hollering. Loping pace for the tune
(plenty of recovery time for the Money Musk newbies, well-timed elegant styling for the
old hands.) Some people apparently showed up specifically because Money Musk was on the
program, thanks to some some advance publicity. Two sets merged, so a few people
didn't get the chance to be active, because I didn't want to run it too long.
(Though I could have... after all I was at that Ralph Page Legacy Weekend when we danced
I had practiced so much that I prompted the dance all night long in my sleep. ("Once
and a half around, once and a half and you go below one...")
