Talib Huff will be calling both dances

This Saturday we have a full evening of dance events. A family dance at 5:30 welcomes children to the dance floor with fun, energetic and simple dances. Everyone is welcome to dance. At 7:00 we’ll sit down for a potluck dinner. Please bring enough food for twice the number of people you bring. We aren’t organizing the potluck, but keep in mind there is only so much chips and salsa you can eat. Bring serving utensils, your own plate and eating utensils if you wish, and labels with contents are always appreciated. At 7:30 those wanting the newcomer’s orientation will head to the dance floor. And at 8:00, our regular contra dance. Talib Huff will call both dances, while Claudia’s Kitchen plays for the family dance and BLAM! for the regular contra dance.
