Next Contra Dance - Saturday, November 18, 2017


Our dance in November brings us one of our local bands: Bonne Terre, with Kenny Greer calling.

Bonne Terre is a fun and talented group with many years of experience playing traditional dance tunes. Their reels and jigs will have you light on your feet!

Kenny Greer is a fun caller from the Myrtle Beach area; he has been calling since at least 1842, and he does not look a year older than that. Seriously, get ready for a fun night of amazing dances!

It will be a great dance in October with Kenny Greer calling and Bonne Terre playing! Come burn some of the holiday calories. We are definitely thankful for each of the dancers in our community! Bring a friend (or three) and your whole family! We welcome everyone; we love having young dancers,young-at-heart dancers, all dancers! Let's Contra!
