Joyce is always a favorite of our Sacramento dancers, and often brings the foothill people with her for our further dancing enjoyment. The band of Deniz Akin, Derya Akin, and Obin Sturm is new to Sacramento, but has been playing and dancing in the bay area, so we are looking forward to hearing them.

Joyce-AkinA newcomer’s orientation is offered at 7:30PM, 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.
