Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off cover school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

July 13, Bham: Contra Dancing

Contra Dancing is traditional New England folk dancing. Americans have enjoyed contra dances since Revolutionary times. They combined ideas from French and English country dancing with their own way of having fun and came up with contra dancing. It's a social dance akin to square dancing which has retained its simple, open, community-oriented spirit.

Our next dance is on Saturday Evening, July 13th at the Bham downtown YMCA. The band, Flying Jenny, will be playing.

The website is www.FOOTMADbirmingham.org, where just about anything you want to know about Contra Dancing could be found.   Admission is $10 for non-members, $8 for college students and members, $4 for Students aged 13-18 and free to those 12 and under. First Timers receive a get-in-free coupon to their next dance this year.

It would be lovely to have members of the Homeschool Community at our dances.

Please let me know if you have any questions,
