BCD hosts contra dance in Valle Crucis June 14
The Boone Country Dancers will take to the Apple Barn in Valle Crucis for its next community contra dance on Saturday, June 14.
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 Bare Knuckle Quartet, and the caller will be Dean Snipes.
Dancers of all ages are encouraged to attend, and no partner is necessary. Attendees may come as they are, although BCD recommends wearing clean, soft-soled and 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 or younger.
