WELCOME CONTRA DANCE
|SATURDAY - SEPTEMBER 30, 2017|
Lenox, 7:30 - 11:30 p.m.
Half a hey, mad robin, pull by, partner swing, star left, balance left, balance right....what does all this mean? A contradance! A what? Contradance- it has some of the moves of squaredance, some of English country dance, easily learned by anyone. A friendly group of folks of all ages, children through young adult, middle and golden agers will welcome you to try out contradancing Saturday night, September 30th 7:30-11pm at the Lenox Community Center, 65 Walker Street. The tunes are contagious, as are the smiles. Come alone or with others. Spare Parts, a favorite local band will light up the hall: Liz Stell on flute, Eric Buddington on fiddle, and Bill Matthiesen on keyboard...and local caller Jon Greene will teach and call dances. Everyone is welcome, admission is free to this special dance sponsored by the Lenox, Monterey, and Pittsfield Cultural Councils to introduce folks to contradancing. The Lenox dancers hold a dance every third Saturday of the month. The thriving local tradition includes quarterly dances in Sheffield MA at Dewey Hall, a first Saturday dance in Chatham NY, and a first and sometimes 5th Friday dance in Albany NY, as well as dances every Friday and Saturday in Greenfield MA and dances most Wednesdays at Downtown Amherst Contra Dance. Dress in comfortable light weight clothes, bring clean shoes with soft soles and a water bottle and come join us to dance, delicious snacks at the break and time to chat and waltz too. Find more on the website at lenoxcontradance.org. Arrive 7:30for the most instruction.
