Don’t forget that this weekend is also the English Country Dance Spring Dance Weekend.

Special Zesty Contra Dance (Fifth Saturday)

Date: Saturday, April 30, 2016, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Location: Coloma Community Center, 4623 T St, Sacramento, CA 95819

Kelsey is a caller, organizer and dancer active in the Hayward dance community, “helping to channel the joy of the musicians’ music through flowing, interesting dances.” The Crabapples were recently described as, “a lively band known for playing a variety of traditional tunes. The Monterey-based band has garnered an enthusiastic following on the Central Coast and beyond. From Irish to French Canadian to old-time, from driving to floating to playful tunes, the Crabapples can do it all and do it delightfully!”

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.

Because of some plumbing issues, the City has disabled the drinking fountains at Coloma.  Filtered water dispensers are available.  It would be a great idea to bring your own water bottle!

For more contra dance information, and contra lost and found, contact Laura Leonelli, 916-549-7093, or email info@sactocds.org.
