Contra Dance in Saluda!

Contra Dance !!!

Saturday, Jan 11; 7 pm

MeetUp Location: Saluda Party and Event place; 221 Friendship Church Rd; Saluda, NC

Contra Dance!!  That wild and crazy fun that combines elements of square dance, line dancing, old English Country Dance, and a little Swing.  Sprinkled with some craziness, and a whole lot of FUN! 

NO experience necessary and you don't need to bring a dance partner - In fact; you are encouraged to dance with different partners each set.

This is a social dance and you meet a lot of really nice people from college age to well past retirement!

We always have fun at this shindig!  Old English Contra dance is becoming popular 'round here.


It's a very energetic activity that does NOT require prior knowledge OR a partner.  The experienced dancers help the beginners and everyone dances with everyone.

Lessons precede each dance to give you the basics.

Where:

The Party and Event Place,

280 Friendship Church Road, Saluda, NC (this works for GPS directions)

Admission is $9 for adults and $5 for 18 yr and under.

    BTW, We will be 'caravaning' from the Cracker Barrel to Saluda so that those who cannot keep up with me on the dance floor can go home early and invigoratingly exhausted. (smirk)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
