Dancing will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a free family and beginners dance running until 7:30 p.m. which will be followed by a dessert potluck.

The main contra dance will begin at 8 p.m. with dancing until 10:30 p.m. Beginners and singles are welcome with all dances taught throughout the evening

Admission is $7 for adults and $3 for ages 6-12. Bring a pair of soft-soled shoes to protect the hall floor.
