Cottonwood AZ (January 8, 2016) – Want to learn something fun and get a little exercise too? How about the chance to meet some new people who are happy and energetic? Contra dance is a little like square dancing but the music is more Celtic and less country. It is based on UK dances from long ago and has been thriving in parts of the US for many years. We always have live music and a caller who will teach the basics in the first half hour and go over new moves as they come up. This month’s dance is Sat., Jan. 16th, the band is Just Desserts, and our caller is Michael Barraclough.
The pre-dance lesson begins at 6:30PM, with dancing from 7:00 until 10:00. If you can walk, you can contra—no experience or partner is needed. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing and bring a snack donation if possible. The location is Cottonwood Civic Center, 805 N. Main Street, in Old Town. Donations are $10 per dancer and $8 for students.
