Fourth Friday Contra Dance, October 2017

Note the special location and time! The October Fourth Friday dance will be a special Halloween-themed dance. We’ll be turning the Veterans Memorial Building into a haunted mansion; costumes encouraged (but not required). Don’t miss it!

Kelsey Hartman will be calling to the music of The Whooooots: Shira Kammen, Jim Oakden, and Daniel Steinberg.

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).
