“I love contra dance because I love the fun, company, music, and the dancer’s high.”
Big Day of Giving, May 2
Please join us for our 33nd anniversary celebration at the new time of 7-10 pm. Cake will be served at the break to celebrate our anniversary, and we will elect our new Board. We will also be hosting a clothing swap at the dance. Bring the shirts, skirts, and dresses that you don’t wear any longer, and trade them for something that’s new to you!
Talent: Susan Petrick calling to the music of Debra Tayleur, Jon Berger, and Roxanne Oliva
Date: Saturday, April 27, 2019
Time: 7:00–10:00 pm, with newcomer’s orientation at 6:30 pm
Location: Coloma Community Center, 4623 T St, Sacramento, CA
Cost: $12 for adults; $8 for college students with ID; $5 for dancers under 18; $25 maximum for families (cash or check)
We’ll kick off the night’s festivities with a community potluck, starting at 5:30 pm in the Nevada City Room at Coloma Community Center. Please bring a dish to share, along with serving utensils, and whatever you want to drink (non-alcoholic). You may also bring your own table setting to save on disposables. We will provide plates, napkins, and utensils.
Debra Tayleur plays piano for several bands, including Whimsical and The Honeysuckle Sisters. Fiddler Jon Berger, of The String Rays and Persons of Quality, has played for English country and contra dances in the San Francisco Bay Area since the early 1980s. Roxanne Oliva plays accordion, harp, and flute in multiple bands, including Whimsical.
A newcomer’s orientation is offered at 6:30 pm, perfect for people who have not contra danced before, or who could use some refresher. Experienced dancers are invited to partner with newcomers during the orientation and early dances to help integrate them into the community.
No partners are needed, so come by yourself or with friends or with family. Potluck snacks are available at the break, and we encourage you to bring something to share. These events are accessible to people with disabilities.
