Contra Dance

 Contra Dance!

 

The Parks and Recreation Department has partnered with Emily Faulkner and Lost Horse Press to bring you Contra Dancing!  Contra dancing is community dancing for all ages, in the New England tradition, featuring live music with great local and regional bands and lively callers.  Contras, circles, and occasionally squares or long ways sets are taught, called and danced in a friendly atmosphere.

 

Meet at Community Hall (204 South First Ave) from 7-10:30pm, every second Friday of the month except August. Next Dance is June 9th! Please use the front door. Beginners and singles welcome; contra dance tradition holds that anyone can ask anyone to dance.  New dancers are warmly encouraged to arrive in time for the beginning (we always start with the basics). If you can walk quickly, count to eight, and know right from left you can contra dance (smile).

 

Light, comfortable clothing suggested. Bring clean, soft-soled shoes, a water bottle (the kind you’ll take home), and your smile. Finger food snacks at the break are much appreciated. A $5 donation at the door is suggested, (musicians need to eat too).
