Rocky Mountain Ranch Dance Quick History
For many years there was a fabulous annual winter contra dance weekend called Stellar Days and Nights.  It was near Buena Vista, Colorado, at the Adventure Unlimited Ranch.  It was sponsored by the local music and dance non-profit organization Arkansas Valley* Music and Dance (AVMAD).

   The dance weekend was known for its nationally-recognized callers and bands, yummy and plentiful food by Chef Matthew, and of course, glorious mountain views.  But by 2018, costs had gone up to the point where the weekend was no longer feasible, and it was declared finished.
   Now, again sponsored by AVMAD, at the same ranch, still with Chef Matthew, and still with nationally-recognized talent, the Rocky Mountain Ranch Dance will be held January 17-20, 2020.  The difference is, due primarily to cost negotiations with the ranch, that costs have been significantly reduced.  And you pay 20-25% less than in 2018.  Yay!
