Enjoy dancing and watching your friends dance, chat and socialize, get some exercise. The program consist of contra dances that are easy to do with one or two people, especially selected by our callers.
Florida contra dancers! Here is an exceptional opportunity to dance via Zoom to live music with TWO national contra callers: Seth Tepfer of Atlanta and our very own JoLaine of Gainesville! Join us on Saturday, June 20, for a GODS social and contra dance to live music by Reelplay
