6.  Choral Group and/or International Folk Dancing anyone?
We are having discussions about developing a choral group and/or
International Folk Dancing as part of the offerings of BWSSCWoW.
Milton Elder and Jerry Cantor have kindly provided information
about developing a BWSSCWoW Choral group.

We are considering the idea of INTERNATIONAL FOLK DANCERS
of volunteer participants -- no registration fees -- who would
provide community service by performing free at senior centers,
and other community events, like the Burke Centre Festival,
the Hawaii Society, etc.  We will be looking for volunteer
instructors -- and I am thinking of asking my daughter-in-law
or her mother to teach us Irish folk dancing.  Participants will have
to purchase costumes as part of their volunteer participation.

If anybody is interested in either project, do please email me
so I can gauge the interest among seniors of the projects.
