April 29th Zesty Contra Dance

The Big Day of Giving is coming up soon! These funds help us to pay for special talent at our Anniversary Dance, for workshops like the upcoming Intermediate Waltz Workshop on May 13th, and for special events like family contra dances and the English country dance Spring Dance Weekend on May 6th and 7th. If you want to support Sacramento Country Dance Society, you no longer have to keep track of the date and remember to give. Instead you can schedule your gift in advance here, and the charge will be completed on May 4th. Please put your money where your heart is by making a one-time, tax-deductible contribution. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it ensures the future of contra and English country dancing in Sacramento. See you at the dance!

Apr_29_zestyThis is a special zesty contra dance, with no newcomer’s orientation. Dances will be taught quickly, and dancers should be familiar with hey for four, Petronella turns, and contra corners. This is an evening for experienced dancers who want to dance with enthusiasm!

Yoyo Zhou is a popular caller from the Bay Area, who has called many dances there and nationally, including the gender-free Circle Left Contra Dance in Oakland. He is known for thoughtful teaching and fun dances, called with energy, enthusiasm, and precision. BLAM! is Bob Silberstein on piano and doumbek, Elizabeth Todd on flutes, whistle, bodhran, and foot percussion, and Marta Lynch on fiddle.
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.
