Kick up your heels in Merville

Slip on the dancing boots and whoop it up to the Contra Dance tunes

It is getting chillier out there so on Saturday, surprise your Sweetie with an invitation to a Friendly Fall Contra Dance at the Big Yellow Merville Hall in downtown Merville.

Slip on the dancing boots and whoop it up to the Contra Dance tunes of the Funtime Fiddlers.

They’ve rosined up the bows and are keen to deliver the tunes while our dance caller, June Cannon, keeps the dancers organized and even brings the wallflowers onto the floor.

Before the dance, from 7-7:30 p.m., there will be a Contra Dance workshop as well as some instruction in basic waltz patterns. The workshops are free of charge so plan to come early.  At 7:30 p.m., the Funtime Fiddlers start the music.

Single dancers are most welcome as they can pair up with anyone during the Contras and the Contra sets last about 15 to 20 minutes per dance.

Doors open at 6:45, dance starts at 7:30 p.m.

Cost is $10/adults, $5/youth (6 and under free) and you can come as a family for $22.

Free workshop starts at 7 p.m.
