Open Community Contra Dance
July 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 7:30pm on day Second of the month, repeating until December 12, 2017
Contra dancing is an American folk original, older than our country, but up-to-date as tomorrow – a true living tradition! You and a partner interact with everyone else in the hall, performing a repeating pattern to energetic music, sometimes walking, sometimes spinning. A range of challenge accommodates all levels of experience, newbie to the enthusiast. No experience necessary, drop-ins welcome. Comfortable clothes and low heeled shoes recommended.
Teaching Artists: Mark Lewis & Guests
Cost: Suggested $5 Donation
Bio: Mark and Dianne Lewis met Contra dancing and have never stopped since. They are tireless in seeking to pass on their enthusiasm for this and other related group social dance traditions, using a light-hearted teaching style that makes learning easy and fun.
