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.

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.

November 14 Contra Dance (Second Saturday)

Yoyo is an up-and-coming and very popular caller from the Bay Area, who has called many dances there and nationally, including the gender-free Circle Left Contra Dance in Oakland. His energy, enthusiasm, and precision is very much appreciated. Soul Weaving plays for us about once a quarter, and their blend of traditional and modern is much enjoyed.
