Dance to the music of CounterCurrent! Brian Lindsay on fiddle, feet, and vocals; and Alex Sturbaum on guitar, accordion, and vocals. Caller is Yoyo Zhou. This dance will feature gender-neutral dance roles.
Everyone is welcome! Bringing a partner is not required, and prior dancing experience is not necessary. Contra dance is a traditional New England style of folk dancing, in which each dance is taught and prompted by a caller. During each dance, partners “progress” up or down the hall, eventually dancing with everyone else in the line. Dances are high-energy, playful, social and set to live music. New dancers are encouraged to attend the free lesson at 3:10, before the regular dance at 3:30. Wear comfortable, non-marking shoes, and comfortable loose-fitting light-weight clothing (twirly skirts are great fun too!).
Suggested admission donation is $12 regular, $20 for supporters, $8 for full-time students w ID card. Cash only.
