On Saturday, November 26, get ready to kick up your heels at The Cooperage, 1030 Main Street in Honesdale, PA. A Contra Dance will run from 7:30 to 10:00pm!
Contra dancing is a form of traditional American set dancing – similar to old-time square dancing. You and your partner dance a series of figures, or steps, with each other and with another couple. The instructions given by the Caller form a series of repeating figures that dancers eventually memorize.
Music will be provided by Poison Love. Members of the band are Dan Brinkerhoff on fiddle, Joanne Wasserman-Brinkerhoff on guitar, Roger Brinkerhoff on bass and mandolin. Caller Laurie B. will make sure you know just what steps to take and when to swing your partner.
Bring the family down for this fun affair! Do-si-do with your partner, allemande left with your corner, and promenade back home! Come with or without a partner. Beginners are always welcome! Suggested donation: $10, kids under 15, free. Dress in casual clothing and wear comfortable shoes.
The Cooperage Project is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to build community through performance, learning, and good times & good works. For more information please visit www.thecooperageproject.org or call 570.253.2020.
