Put down that Green Beer and spin with a partner instead!
If everyone who says they'd LOOOOVE to contra "next time" comes to this event, we'll pack the hall! Mostly Marin has co-hosted 3 contra events since last December and each one has gotten 5-stars! This is just plain and simple good-time dancing. Once you learn some basic steps and get with a veteran partner for a dance or two, you will be "a dancer"!!
Men: Leave your "dance anxiety" behind and come enjoy the workout. If you can walk, you can contra.
Scent-free dancing is requested.
Lesson at 6:45, dance starts at 7:30.
$12 at the door.
For the price you get a FREE lesson taught by the evening's dance caller, Susan Kevra (she knows what the dances will be that night!), guaranteed dancing with a partner as often as you want all evening long, yummy snacks at intermission AND LIVE MUSIC!!
(Contra dance music features fantastic fiddle tunes, driving Celtic rhythms, Cajun, old-timey and sometimes dashes of Eastern-European and swing.)
In addition to calling contra dances, Susan Kevra is a professor of French and American Studies at Vanderbilt University!! http://www.susankevra.com/

Contra dancing focuses on pattern, flow and rhythm. It's energetic, so wear loose, comfortable clothes and low, smooth-soled shoes that will stay on your feet (not sandals or running shoes).
Beginners are WELCOME!
