Sept11_contraSusan Petrick started teaching and calling for contra dances in 2000. Susan lives in Mountain View and has become a regional treasure with national prominence, who tours throughout the country calling for dance weekends and festivals. She is well-known for her clear teaching, efficient guidance, and expert pacing, making even complex dances accessible to all. BLAM! “Bob, Liz, and Marta” is Bob Silberstein, piano and doumbek, Elizabeth Todd, flutes, whistle, bodhran, and foot percussion, and Marta Lynch, fiddle.

A newcomer’s orientation is offered at 7:30 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.
