My band “Peter, Paul & George” recorded a CD and I wrote a companion instruction book called "Peel the Banana", which presents a sequence of dances from school residencies and family dances, and community intergenerational dances.
Recently I released a new CD of dances called “Dance Round the World” and I'm working on a companion book.

We have worked in more than 500 public and private schools, mostly elementary, since 1992.
Most of my work has been with my trio, "Peter, Paul and George". We are based in upstate NY Capital Region. The most recent schools, as of July, 2011, are: (all in NYS) Loudonville Elementary School (North Colonie), Carroll Hill Elementary School (Troy), Lake Avenue Elementary (Saratoga Springs), Queensbury Elementary, North Park Elementary (Hyde Park).
In addition, we have worked at more than 25 libraries throughout upstate NY, and at several historic sites.
We lead daytime school residencies in traditional dance and music - with live acoustic music – that are full of community-building activities that get everyone moving. Dances come from over forty countries. All are participatory.
At the Family Dance, as the culminating activity after a residency, parents, grandparents, and others join the students in the dances they learned during the days.
Our library and historic site programs are generally intergenerational, or youth oriented dances and workshops in dance and music.
