Start the year off with a rip-roaring contra dance to the tunes of Emily Ann Thompson Band from Indiana and caller Angela DeCarlis. The dance is held at the Thelma Boltin Center. The dance begins at 4pm with an introductory workshop at 3:30 for those new to contra dance. Children are welcome to dance with us, and childcare is provided for those children who do not wish to dance. Bring a snack to share and a cup or water bottle to reduce waste. Waltzing to live music will be held starting at 2:45pm and is included in the cost of the dance. If you only want to waltz and not stay for the contra dance, we suggest a donation of $5 for waltzing. In order to more adequately compensate these traveling musicians and caller, the admission to this dance will be $10/ still $5 for students and under 21. But, as always, if you can contribute more to help out, please do so, and if you cannot contribute that much, whatever you pitch into the pot will help. We want to make sure that everyone gets to experience this great dance!
