Sept 30: Advanced contra with Roni Wiener & The Stepping Stones

Roni Wiener & The Stepping Stones

After several years as a travelling dancer, Roni Wiener has finally decided she can skip a few dances and share the joy of contra from the stage. Roni loves using what she learned on the dance floor to craft engaging programs that entertain all levels of dancers. She teaches and calls with clarity and contagious enthusiasm. Roni also enjoys teaching contra dancing workshops to help build a thriving contra dancing community.

Come early and catch Roni's 15-minute workshop for experienced contra dancers just before the dance. The theme of the workshop is 'Timing'.

Stepping Stones, a husband-and-wife team, are coming up from Melbourne to play their own distinctive contra melodies for our dancing pleasure.

The Stepping Stones are:
* Robin Osgood on fiddle; and
* Norman Rodham on guitar.
