Next Contra Dance - Saturday, April 15, 2017

The band in April will be Good Foot from Charleston, SC. Good Foot plays Celtic, American and original music that are always a delight for dancers of all experience levels. The band is made up of Karin McQuade (fiddle, vocal), Susan Conant (flutes, whistles, vocals), and Bart Saylor (multi-instrumentalist, vocals).

Our caller will be Stephanie Marie from Charlotte, NC. Stephanie gives very clear teaching, brings a fabulous selection of dances for all to enjoy, and her love for Contra dancing comes through in every dance. 

It will be a great dance with Stephanie Marie and Good Foot!

Sound by John Wetzel!
