Autumn-in-danceFebruary 13 Family Dance: For the Love of Dance!

A family dance (For the Love of Dance) will occur in the afternoon, 2:00 to 4:00PM, at Coloma Community Center, with calling by Erik Hoffman and music by Erik and Clark Smith. The dances will be selected to appeal to family members of all ages, but the dance is open to all dancers whether part of a family or not. Some of the same dances learned during the afternoon will be repeated in the evening. The family dance has special pricing: $15 per family of parents and children, $5 per child without dancing parent, and $10 per adult without children.

February 13 Contra Dance (Second Saturday)

Erik Hoffman brings clear teaching and calling, and a sense of humor. Soul Weaving is the perfect driving force behind Eric’s calling and our feet.

A 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.
