CONTRA DANCING IS SO MUCH FUN

Seriously, you'll love it.  No pressure, a good workout but easy on the joints (do I sound old?).  Don't even have to have a date because you're ENCOURAGED to change partners each dance.

Community Contra Dance February 2, 2013, in Kingston PA


A New England Contra dance features  music by the “Smash the Windows” with fiddler Bruce Young, accompanied by Peg Shutes on keyboard, along with calling by Hilton Baxter. The dance at 7:00PM, at the Church of Christ Uniting, 776 Market Street, Kingston. No partner or previous experience is necessary.  Because the pattern of moves of each Contra Dance is repeated often, Contra Dances are easy to learn, and dancers of all skill levels are welcome.  The caller will teach all the dances.  The dance tradition encourages dancers to change partners throughout the evening, so each person will get to dance with a variety of skill levels. Lightweight clothing is recommended. Dancers are invited to  bring a snack to share at intermission. Those arriving early can join a pot-luck dinner starting at 6 pm.  Bring a dish-to-pass if coming for the dinner.  Further information is available at 570-333-4007 or at folkloresociety.org, where dancers can connect to the Facebook page and watch videos.of recent dances.
