Last Contra Dance of the Season under the full moon!

Puff (and friends)! This is the last opportunity until October to contra dance outdoors at the Barnacle, so let's do it!
We'll meet at the gorgeous sloping lawn of the Barnacle, with picnicking gear and dancing shoes, to Contra dance in the big open pavilion on the Bay! There'll be a 3 piece band playing, so come out, enjoy the full moon/stars, with your fellow paddlers.

The price of entry to the Barnacle for the event is $10. Here's a link for more information to the contra dance

Price: $10.00 - 10 years and older, 9 and under free

Old Time Dance

Kick up your heels to live traditional American music while learning traditional American folk dance steps from Lou Dow. All levels are welcome, instruction is provided. Dances such as circles, squares, contras, and waltzes were all the rage in the 1800s, so come party like it's 1899! Gates open at 6pm, live music and dancing from 6:30-10pm. No pets please.

If you would like to have a snack at the break time,
please bring one to share.

    As always, contra dance at the Barnacle is incredible fun. Thanks to Lou, who selflessly gives up his time to host and call this event, everyone, from newcomers to old timers, enjoyed 'kicking up their heels' to the wonderful rhythms of the live band. And for those who 'just want to watch', this event is a great opportunity for people to socialize and connect face to face!

      Hi Monique: It was great talking to you at contradance at the Barnacle on Sunday. I do hope to see you at one of our meetups for beginner practices in the near future. And if it makes you feel any better, after a year of being on the team, I am still 'embracing' the pain of my muscles learning to rotate, reach and being in sync....and I still have a long way to go!

    Susana, it's a fairly intimate gathering; maybe 40 people on the floor, and as many as half of them may be us. We're easy to find.
