The Gadabouts are coming to town! Get your fix of old time music gone amok interspersed with zesty and beautiful cajun waltzes.
Our caller, Rona Wiener will test your mettle as a contra dancer with surprising moves and patterns.
The Gadabouts are:
• David Massey - piano, fiddle, vocals;
• John McEwen - percussion, bass, tenor guitar;
• Marietta Massey - banjo, percussion;
• Bill Paine - guitar, tenor guitar, mandolin; and
• Kathie Aagaard - fiddle.
Dancers 25 and under pay only $5.00 admission; dancers 15 & under dance for free! $10.00 otherwise, at the Thelma Boltin Center 516 NE 2nd Ave, Gainesville, FL 32601. Included is our social waltz before the dance - 5:45-6:30 pm. No partner necessary.
New dancers, and those wishing to review their dance moves or help others to do so, please attend the free lessons 30 minutes before the dance. Come at 5:45 to waltz, glide into the contra lesson and then "Contra the Night away"! Dance ends at 10 pm.
If you snack, bring one to share and a water bottle to save the planet. A babysitter is available at no extra charge.
