In February 2017, our Live Oak Grange dances will be moving to the fourth Friday of the month (instead of the second).
And to get our Fourth Friday dances off to a roaring start, we’ll have Warren Blier calling to the music of Lee Anne Welch (fiddle), Elizabeth Todd (flute, whistle, percussion), and Cheryl McKinney (piano).
About Our Contra Dances
Everyone is welcome! Partners and dancing experience are not necessary. Each of the dozen or so dance forms during the evening are taught and prompted (except for the waltz and hambo).
Beginner’s Workshop: dancers are encouraged to attend the beginner’s lesson at 6:40. Regular dancing begins at 7:00 (dances can get more complex as the night goes on).
Admission: Suggested admission donation is $12 regular, $8 for full-time students w/student ID card. Discounts for volunteers.
Wear: Comfortable, non-marking shoes to protect your feet and our floors – a separate pair of dance shoes works best. You’ll be more comfortable in loose-fitting light-weight clothing.
Please note that many dancers are very sensitive to fragrances and body odor and that our dances are fragrance-free events (read more).
