This is our annual benefit dance for the First Congregational Church, in appreciation for the church for providing us a venue. The benefit is scheduled to coincide with the Sharlot Hall Folk Music Festival. Contra dancing is a social dance of long lines of couples # one & two accompanied by a band playing Celtic music. Caller teaches and prompts each individual dance, about 15 minutes, repeating 5 or mote figures over and over. One of the figures causes the couples to progress, ones going up the hall and twos going down the hall, couples thereby dancing with successive neighbor couples. Singles, couples, families, newcomers welcome. No partner required. Multiple callers and bands for this special event. If you are new to contra dancing, please come to the lessons, 7 to 7:30.
