Donna Hunt & Koretzky & Young

After retaining Koretzky & Young, Counselor Donna reviews the contra contract: the party of the first part shall dance with the party of the second part, leading the witnesses in amicus allemandes, bonded balances, habeas heys, and proviso petronellas. Legal briefs may be exhibited by those seeking guilty pleasures. Before adjourning to sip a subpoena colada, let it be resolved in reference to the aforementioned, the verdict is in – there really is a Santa Claus.


There will be a Holiday Party nearby after the dance.  Please bring hugs, substantial food, drinks, and desserts.  Directions will be at the dance.

Our mask policy is based on the current rating for Morris County from the CDC. When the county rating is at the current Yellow or Green level, masks will be optional in all dance lines.  At the Orange level, masks [N/KN-95 or surgical] are required on all dance lines.  At any dance, we may announce that masks are required in all lines. 

Proof of vaccination must be presented at the door or may be sent in advance—see full Covid protocol below.
