Contra Dance at Macon County Public Library November 5
November 5 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
First Saturday contra dancing will be held in the Macon County Public Library Saturday, November 5, 6:30-9:00 pm, opening with a half hour of instruction for beginners followed by two hours of dancing with caller Charlotte Crittenden and live music by the band, Late to the Party.
Contra dance is widely considered the most accessible and sociable of all dance forms, with participants moving in two long facing lines or in groups, changing partners often. No experience is needed; all dances are taught. Attendees don’t need to bring a partner but are welcome to do so, and may bring a closed water container and snack. Wear comfortable clothes; no perfumes or strong scents, please. Masks are encouraged but not required. Admission is by donation; $10 is suggested.
The Library is at 149 Siler Farm Road, Franklin, with ample lighted parking and wheelchair accessibility. The event is sponsored by The James Edward Hudock Trust, and produced by Friends of Contra Dance in Macon County and the Arts Council. For details phone 828-524-ARTS or email email@example.com.
