Hey hikers, instead of hiking let's go dancing. I've hosted this in the past and it's a lot of fun. I guarantee a great time, a challenge of a different workout. This Saturday dance is in Sacramento.
Contra dancing is a form of traditional American set dance, done to live music, usually Celtic or traditional American reels and jigs. There is a caller, who first teaches the figures to be done in a particular dance and then calls the dance as the music is played. The dance usually lasts 8-9 minutes. The dances are done in longways sets of couples, in which a dancer and his/her partner do a short series of dance moves with each other and another couple, then moves along the set to a new couple and repeats the figures, and so on. The dance figures are simple and similar to traditional square dances (do-si-do, allemande and swing your partner). However, it is not square dancing. You don't need to bring a partner to come to the dance. The dance figures are taught at 7:30 pm with the dancing at 8-11. If you're a beginner, please come to the 7:30 lesson. Cost is $10. Wear comfortable shoes, loose clothing and bring water. Be ready for a workout!
