Wow!  What a turn out!  87 dancers for February's dance and there was still plenty of room for more friends!  Kristina taught a great Waltz lesson and had 10 couples there to learn some new moves for the dance floor!

This month we'll have a special treat - not one but TWO great chances for you to get out on the dance floor!  The first will be March 1, with Flatland String Band and Otis Watson calling.  Then, as a special event on March 15th, we'll have a special St. Patrick's Day dance!

We're always excited to see new and old faces alike and the past few months haven't disappointed!  We hope you'll spread the word and bring your friends out to check out Contra with us.  Whether they've never danced before, or they're pros, we'd be glad to get to dance with them!

So have a great rest of your February and we look forward to dancing with you this spring!!!

Happy New Year!!!

December's dance was wonderful!  We had a great group dancing and Kristina taught a phenomenal swing dance lession before hand.  If there is interest we might do somthing similar in the future!

This month we will have aweome music from 37 mile band and will have some fun-filled dances from Susan Downs!  I hope that y'all can join us and bring all your friends!  If anyone has made a new year's resolution to exercise more, this is a great substitute for less entertaining forms of physical actvity!  Come join us and make it as laid back or as energetic as you want!

We can't wait to celebrate the new year with y'all on the dance floor!
