Sat Oct 21, 20173rd Saturday Contra Dance  

Welcome back!!! Jeremy Korr calling the dances to the music of "Atlantic Crossing"! We're so lucky to combine both in one evening. Jeremy's unfailing friendliness, clear teaching, and large repertoire of spirited dances will be matched so well with the treasury of great Irish & American roots music brought to us by Georgiana Hennessy, Patty McCollom, and Matt Tonge. The band mingles the energy of Irish Ceili dance and American barn dance. Enticing, lilting, driving, haunting. Perhaps some thrilling harmony singing right in a sweet spot of the dance. Under 30 Years Old? FREE ADMISSION Again This Month! Invite your younger friends and neighbors!
