Contra Dancing at American Legion Post - Wethersfield, CT

  • Mar 9, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Saturday dance!! Last one of the season until September. OK, this isn't hiking but even though it is almost Spring it's cold out and the nights are longish so let's have some good clean old fashioned dancing!!!

There will be Contra Dancing from 8 PM to 11 PM at the American Legion Post in Wethersfield, CT. Beginner's lessons from 7:30 PM to 8 PM. All are welcome to come to the event (married or single). You don't have to bring a partner. Children are welcome too. Casual dress (best no high heels, though). his venue is non-alcoholic. There is an $12 fee ($5 for students, 12 and under free) the Post charges for entry to cover their costs.

This is a great event with lots of fun. Dress like it is hot out for dancing as you will get hot dancing. Please note there is an overall limit as to how many people can fit in the Post so I have limited RSVP's. Parking is on the street. Just because you RSVP here does not necessarily mean there will be room in the Post if you arrive late.
