To commemorate André Van De Plas's contribution to our group, we are holding a workshop by Kaye Laurendet, André's Australian collaborator.

Before his passing, André sent Kaye some material for 10 dances in his planned 2019 tour, which she can present in this workshop.

André had the ability to select wonderful music and dances. We have a final chance to enjoy this, and say goodbye.
