|Description:||Live music by the Berlin Country Orchestra with Tim van Egmond calling. Join us at 6 PM for our annual potluck before the dance!
Contra is an American folk dance, set to live folk music, in which a caller instructs the dancers through each set of moves. As the song continues, dancers progress along a line of other dancers, regularly swapping partners and enjoying new company while mastering the pattern of the current dance. New England's answer to square dancing is very easy to learn and very welcoming to newcomers. Dancing starts at 7:30 PM and goes until 10:30 PM, with a half-hour beginners' lesson beforehand.
Admission is on a sliding scale: only $8-10 per person. Family admission is just $18-20 and students with ID just $6-8. Children 12 and under FREE! Newcomers get a coupon to come back for FREE!
Dancing is at the Wesley United Methodist Church in the church hall accessible from the left side of the church building. Just follow the signs. 114 Main Street at the corner of State Street in Worcester. Park behind the church or on State Street.
