BCD hosts contra dance July 12
The Boone Country Dancers step into the Apple Barn in Valle Crucis for the next community contra dance on Saturday, July 12.
Everyone is welcome to attend the contra dance, regardless of dance experience. The evening will begin with a beginners’ workshop from 7:30 to 8 p.m. According to BCD, “The goal of the workshop is to teach the fundamentals of contra dance with a focus on having fun.”
After the workshop, the regular dance will run from 8 to 11 p.m., with a waltz break at 9:30 p.m. The dance will feature the band, Bob Kogut and Friends, and the caller will be Connie Carringer.
Dancers of all ages are encouraged to attend, and no partner is necessary. Dancers are invited to come as they are, but encouraged to wear clean, soft-soled flexible shoes for dancing. As always, BCD dances are smoke- and alcohol-free.
Admission to the dance is $7 for adults, $5 for high school students and free to anyone 12 years old or younger.
The Apple Barn is located on the grounds of the Valle Crucis Conference Center at 146 Skiles Way in Valle Crucis. For more information, visit http://www.boonecountrydancers.org.
