PITT’S MAGGOT 2020 An English Country Dance Weekend March 13-15, Pittsburgh PA. After talking with Daron Douglas and Joseph Pimentel this morning, it became clear that neither of them feel safe/comfortable flying to Pitt’s Maggot this weekend.  As much as we would love to have you come and dance with us, we are aware that the big draw was our talent.  Although we are disappointed, we think it is most responsible at this point to cancel the weekend.  We will be able to give you full refunds on your registrations.  Looking forward to dancing with you again in the future!
