Next Meetup

Contra Dance !
If it's your very-first-time trying contra dance, and you come to the Introduction at 2:30pm, you can dance for FREE! It's good exercise, so wear comfortable, cool layers. Also wear comfortable shoes with non-marking soles. Bring a water bottle and if inspired, a potluck snack. Leave artificial scents at home please. Come for the lesson at 2:30-3pm, everyone is welcome to dance. Then we dance from 3:00-4:30pm, ending the first half with a couples' waltz AND a kid-friendly, simple "barn dance". We usually change partners after each dance and meet many people. There is a 15 minute potluck snack break (you can also donate cash if you'd like). There is more dancing followed by a 2nd waltz until 6pm. Then we all help clean up. Be prepared to have a good time and your smile might hurt when you leave.....
