By Crackey! It’s October already and it’s time for the first Community Contra Dance at the almost famous Big Yellow Merville Hall.
On Saturday, Oct. 20, bring your pigsney partner and whoop it up to the Contra Dance tunes of the Funtime Fiddlers. These musical maestros will be playing the fiddle tunes for your dancing pleasure while our dance caller, June Cannon, keeps everyone prancing merrily along. As usual, there will be a Contra Dance workshop right before the dance. From 6:45-7:15 p.m., June will introduce the dancers to new moves as well as teach the basic moves. This workshop is free of charge so plan to come early.
At 7:30 p.m., the Funtime Fiddlers start the music and the dancing begins. Single dancers are most welcome as they can pair up with anyone during the Contras and our Contra sets last about 15-20 minutes per dance. In between the called Contra dances, we’ll play waltzes, foxtrots, polkas and even a Spot Dance for your enjoyment. This way, there is a dance for everyone and everyone gets a good workout. Doors open at 7 p.m, dance starts at 7:30 p.m. Cost is $10/adults, $5/youth and you can come as a family for $22.
