Birmingham's Red Mountain White Trash old-time string band plays a long-overdue tour of North Florida January 31 - Feb 2. It's just a short 2-hour drive to Tallahassee to contra dance on Friday night and a concert and dance on Saturday night. Visit http://www.tallydancer.com for more details. Then "The Trash" arrives in Gainesville for a rip-roarin' contra dance on Sunday, Feb 2 from 4pm - 7pm at the beautiful Thelma Boltin Center 516 NE 2nd Avenue, 32601. Our callers are extra special for this event as well - Myra Hirschberg and Tom Calwell from Toronto Canada. Tom and Myra have many years experience and we're pleased to welcome them to Gainesville.
There will be an introductory workshop for those new to contra dance at 3:30. New dancers are highly encouraged to attend the workshop. To better compensate our traveling musicians and callers, the price for this special event is $10/$5 for students and under 21. Children old enough to know left from right are welcome to dance with us and childcare is provided for those children who do not wish to dance. Please bring a snack to share and a cup or water bottle to reduce waste.
