    May Day!
    Inspiration Point, Tilden Park, Berkeley CA
    Following a tradition that is as old as time itself, or at least as old as Bob's memory, which is close enough as not to matter, we will begin our regular season by dancing the sun up at Inspiration Point, Tilden Regional Park, Berkeley. We gather at Inspiration Point at 5am and begin dancing around 5:30. Sunrise happens at 6:13am, and we will dance until around 6:30. Dress warmly!

    If you can't join us for sunrise, please do catch up with us as we dance throughout the day.
