Cottonwood AZ (November 13, 2019) – Cottonwood Contra Dance welcomes the high energy, toe-tapping band, Mountain High, on Saturday, November 16th, with calling by Kari Usher. Our new location is Clemenceau gymnasium at 1 N. Willard St. in Cottonwood. Musicians are Ron Paul on keyboard, Jim Glish on guitar, and three fiddle players: Sonja Whisman, Kirah Bartelli, and Billy Terrell.
You don’t need a partner OR experience—all dances are taught and called and we go over the basic moves from 6:30-7:00 PM with dancing until 10:00PM. If you can walk, you can contra!
Admission is $10/dancer, $7/students; all Cottonwood-Oak Creek students are free with a paid adult.
Contra dance has some similarities to square dancing and English and Scottish folk dancing; you can see examples on Youtube. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes you can move in. Bring a snack to share if possible.
The dance is sponsored by the Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music. For more information, call 928-634-0486 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
