1st Saturday Contradance - No December dance - Come JAN 5, 2019!
Contradance -- what is it? Not a square dance, Not a line dance, but somewhere in-between. Upbeat rhythms provided by Mud In Yer Eye, a large, live band with all sorts of acoustical instruments. Keeping traditions alive, we play well-known and newer pieces that will make you want to move your feet! Come early and grab a partner... don't have to bring one! If you are new to Contradance, you might like to attend the informal lessons at 7pm. All dances are called, explained and walked through before the band sends you flying into a reel or swinging with your partner for the animated "contra".
