March 1 Rode Skollars and Stan Prince

Budding trees and fresh breezes harken seasonal change. Change in contra bands is more subtle - The Rode Skollers, formerly known as the Road Scholars - will do their best to live up to their new image this Sunday.

Anchoring us in this sea of change, is our caller Stan Prince. Fresh from co-hosting the 20th annual Snow Ball, Stan brings us his longtime love of the dance, some old favorites and perhaps a new gem.

December 29 Advanced Dance with "The Gadabouts" and Stan Prince

The Gadabouts

Comes celebrate the New Year a couple of days early with "The Gadabouts" and caller Stan Prince. The Advanced Dance is for those dancers who have attended at least three contra dances in the past and feel comfortable with the most common contra dance figures. While a new dancer will not be turned away, this dance does not accommodate them as do our regular dances. There will be no introductory workshop and the evening may not necessarily begin with easy dances and build up in complexity. If you want to introduce a newbie to contra, please bring her/him to one of the regular dances.
