Next Contra Dance - Saturday, December 16, 2017


Our dance in December brings us the duet of  Bob & Amy Cunningham, with Dean Hooks, Jr. calling.

Bob & Amy have been delighting Contra dancers for many years. They play energetic, fun, traditional Contra tunes to the delight of all dancers. You will be light on your feet with Bob & Amy!

Dean Hooks, Jr., from Charlotte, NC., is a fun, enthusiastic, and inventive caller that brings amazing energy to each dance.

It will be a great dance in December with Dean Hooks, Jr., calling and Bob & Amy Cunningham playing!

Come burn off some of the holiday calories and share your Christmas spirit with us. We are definitely thankful for each of the dancers in our community!
