A contra dance will be held from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 8, at the Bridge Park Pavilion in Bryson City.
There will also be a potluck dinner following the dance, starting at 5:30 p.m. The dance is free, though participants are encouraged to make a contribution toward the cost of renting the hall.
All dances will be taught and walked through before dancing and no partner is required.
Contra dancing is a form of English country dancing that has become very popular with people of all ages during the last twenty years. It uses many of the same figures as square dancing such as circles, stars and swings.
