First Contradance of Semester at Wesleyan Thursday

First Contra Dance of the semester at Wesleyan this Thursday!

If you like traditional folk music and dance, this is the place to be!

Contra dancing is an energetic folk dance and a great way to meet new people. Beginners absolutely welcome. Live music. Snacks provided.  You don't need to bring a partner -- just show up, and people will ask you to join in.  All dances are taught, and the music is full of energy -- it gets you moving!

Date: Thursday, October 30th
Time: 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Place: Beckham Hall, Fayerweather building, Wesleyan Campus (on Wyllys Ave)
Cost: free, (optional donation) 

Since it’s the night before Halloween, costumes are definitely allowed! (but not required…)

These dances encourage newcomers (for many of the students this is a first attempt at organized dancing), and the mix of all ages creates a wonderful feel of community in the room -- contra dance regulars, Wesleyan students, Middletown folk & local teenagers all sharing the space.

Music will be provided by the band Perpetual eMotion, from Maine, and calling will be provided by Dave Eisenstadter, a young up-and-coming dance caller from the Boston area. Both the dances and the music will be lively and fun!

Hope to see you there!
