Contra dance your way to Sylva library

Written by 

The next Second Sunday Contra Dance will be held from 2:30-5 p.m. on Sept. 9 in the community room on the second floor of the old courthouse in the Jackson County Library Complex in Sylva.

Ron Arps will call the dance to the music of “Out of the Woodwork.” There will also be a potluck dinner following the contra dance, starting at 5:30 p.m. Please bring a covered dish, plate, cup and cutlery and a water bottle.

All dances are done to live music. Local musicians are invited to sit in with the band, to jam and learn how to play music for dancing. No previous experience with contra dancing is necessary. All dances will be taught and walked through before dancing. No partner is required.

Contra dancing is a form of English country dancing and uses many of the same figures as square dancing such as circles, stars and swings.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
