NGI Recipient: Chris Murray
Session Attended: CDS Boston Centre - Labor Day Weekend (2009)
I will begin by saying my Labor Day weekend at Pinewoods was a wonderful experience and I would not have been able to enjoy it if not for my scholarship. As a dancer on The Newtowne Morris Men I was exceptionally pleased with the morris intensive with John Dexter. After each class was over I felt as though I grew as a dancer that much more and the tips I learned that weekend I still see in my dancing today. Aside from the dancing, the weekend was also great because I met new people who share a similar fondness of folk dance and music, most of which I am still in contact with. With all this I must thank you for my scholarship position, as a college student getting the money to attend these dance weekends can be pretty difficult so I fully appreciate the opportunity I was given. Forgive me for taking so long to write this letter but I became distracted with school. Hope to see you again in the future.
