Celia's by the Beach
Hi Ocean Beach Buddies - OK this is a lot to ask - you will have to pay $10 plus learn how to do a new dance. So I'm wondering if anyone will sign up but I have faith in you and your spirit of adventure!
They do Contra dancing at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church at 43rd and Judah every weekend. It's a type of dance based on English, Irish and Scottish country dancing. It starts at 8pm but there is a free lesson for newbies (me included) at 7:30pm, so let's meet in the bar area at Celia's about 2 blocks away at 6:30pm for a drink and then head over around 7:25pm to the church for the dance lesson. The lesson is free so if you just want to try it and not stay for the live music and dance, you can do that without paying the $10.
It's group dancing but you have a partner so we could really use some men signing up for this one. OK, now I'm really pushing my luck, but again - having faith.... :)
Here is some info about the dancing: http://www.bacds.org/series/contra/san_francisco/
Yes I see there is a free dance the following weekend but we have Gini's farewell dinner the following night, so I hope you can come this weekend and pay the $10 - I'm sure it will be a lot of fun.
If you don't want to meet for the drink first, go straight to the church at 7:30pm:
St. Paul's Presbyterian Church
[masked]rd Ave, San Francisco @ Judah St.
Otherwise, meet at Celia's in the bar and look for me. I'll try to have a meetup sign with me.
