The Second Sunday Contra Dance will take place from 2:30-5 p.m. on April 15. The dance will be held at the Bridge Park Pavilion on Railroad Avenue in Sylva and will be followed by a potluck dinner at 5:30. Bring a covered dish, plate, cup and cutlery and a water bottle.
Ron Arps will call the dance to the music of Out of the Woodwork. All dances are done to live music, and 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, and 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.
