Contra Dancing! February 23rd!!

Prepare to shake what you got! Not sure of the differences between square and contra dancing, but they sure look similar to me. Anyway, it is fun and be ready for a good workout. Dances start with couples in groups of four. You don't need to bring a date! Different partner every dance! Then you mix and match with the other foursomes. Instructions are given at 7pm sharp for beginners and a walkthrough before every dance. Guys, come on out since we are always short of men dancers. I'm just getting back to it after a two-year absence. It's is fun! Dress is casual.

Bring a small snack to share. Like a box of cookies or a small tray of crackers and dip...whatever! Cost is $8 for adults and $6 seniors. This is a good chance to get out and get the holiday cheer off your hips!!

      We will have to go to tys dancing, or somewhere like that, modern dancing is simple, just move to the beat. The hard part is finding somewhere that plays good music, does tys really have that good of music????

You can't dance wrong just some people are a little better. than others, if I can attempt this with 2 artificial knees you can go and learn right along side of me. :-D
