Dana-Parkinson and Category Five

Dana Parkinson will be calling to the music of Category Five. So get ready for some rip-snorting good music and dance!

Dana Parkinson started contra dancing in 2009 with the Tampa Friends of Old-Time Dance. Through support from her local community and inspiration from dancing at dozens of dance weekends, Dana soon found herself at a Contra Calling Workshop with Cis Hinkle. In no time at all she was calling local dances.
