Next Contra Dance - Saturday, August 19, 2017


Our dance in August brings us Foot Spring from Charlotte, NC, with Natalie Weston calling.

Foot Spring is a great duo formed by Jennifer Lane and Buddy McManus and they play traditional Contra tunes, jigs and reels, with energy that rivals bands with twice as many players. They will make our dancing fun and light!

Natalie Weston is one of our local callers and she always brings fun and energetic dances for us to dance to.

It will be a great dance in August with Natalie Weston calling and Foot Spring playing!
