Saturday Dec 20: Kumquats at Large & Sam Rotenberg

Kumquats-At-Large & Sam Rotenberg

Closing out the contra year, our ever-popular "old acquaintances", Kumquats at Large will play a dance not likely to be forgotten! Let's join together in dancing out 2014.

Our caller, Sam Rotenberg, is taking a break from calling In Philly and various other frozen locales to warm up a dance for us. Having also called at NEFFA and Pinewoods and being an English Country dancer, an interesting dance is sure to be afoot.

Kumquats at Large is: Rich Crew (fiddle and recorder), Sarah Mitchell (penny whistle, flute, drum, foot percussion and hammered dulcimer) and Bill Dudley, guitar.

Dancers 25 and under pay only $5.00 admission! $8.00 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.
