BIDA Sparkle
Welcome to the second BIDA ~*Sparkle*~ on September 29, 2018. Sparkle is an evening of waltzes, blues, and fusion dancing. The dance will run from 7:30-10:30 pm. The first half will feature waltzes and sweet and groovy tunes by Julie Vallimont and friends. Then we'll have a break with an introductory lesson to fusion social couple dancing, blending and borrowing from waltz and blues. The second half will be DJed fusion-y-bluesy-waltzy songs you can dance your heart out to. This is a special BIDA dance with live and recorded electronic-acoustic music and club lighting (glowy clothes are fun!). As always, BIDA is an inclusive community and everyone is welcome. Public Transportation (recommended): We are across the street from the Porter Square Red Line stop. Parking: Free street parking (meters and residential are open to all on Sundays). Don't park in the Shaw's parking lot because they tow. We highly encourage public transit and carpooling -- feel free to start a carpool thread in the comments below! Admission will be $7 - $15 sliding scale. If you are interested in volunteering and getting in for free and making this whole thing possible, we always need **lots** of hands to get the extra **sparkle** ready. Stay tuned for a volunteer post! See you there!

    What we're about

    Contra dance is a kind of social dance with live music where a caller teaches the figures. You don't need to come with a partner, and while there is a short lesson before each of our dances it's optional. Most people learn contra dancing by doing it.

    You should wear comfortable clothes that you can move easily in. High heels don't work well. We'll have water but if you'd like to save cups bringing a water bottle is good.
