A local-foods potluck, contra dance lessons, & live music entertainment. Donation asked to cover band & caller.
Contra dancing utilizes Celtic, jazz, blues, old time, jigs & reels. This English country dancing was popular during the 17th century & the French called it contredans which means opposite dance. Partners stand in parallel lines opposite each other while a caller & live band set the night in motion. The partners interact in a set of four, but over the course of the dance each partner moves up & down the line dancing with other partners & other sets. There is no fancy foot work involved as with other line dances & no medical contraindications unless your doctor doesn't want you to raise your heart beat. It is a fun, engaging dance the whole family can enjoy!
Put on some tennis shoes, bring a covered dish or two & come stretch your face muscles with us.
