Kenny Greer, a fun and very well established Contra caller, will guide anybody interested in learning how to call in learning the basics of this fun activity.
5-6p Review of Caller Basics, Group Discussion, Q&A
6-7p Individual Caller Practice for several mins each, with feedback from group (one selected dance callers have brought with them, or Kenny will supply some to choose from - we will have extra index cards on hand)
7p Experienced dancers show up
7-9p Callers who would like to call the dance they practiced earlier can call entire dance for the group. We will ask group for feedback after each dance since this is a learning environment
- We will not have a beginner's lesson this day. We ask for experienced dancers only; if you have been to a few Contra dances, then you should be able to help new callers and have fun during the dance.
- We will use recorded music.
- The callers will be new at calling, so things may not always work perfectly. Be prepared for the unexpected and let's have fun as we support new callers in this great adventure.
ICE CREAM SOCIAL
We will have an ice cream social after the dance. Feel free to bring your own desert or other sweets.
See you on July 21st!
