Contra dance

Attend a contra dance from 7:30-10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, at Carbondale Community School, 1505 Satank Road, and enjoy fine music, delightful company, dynamic dancing and good cheer — the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit. The dance will be called by Chris Kermitt and will feature contras, squares, waltzes and polkas and the sweet old-time music of Wooden Nickel String Band. All dances will be taught by the caller, so no experience is necessary. Come with or without a partner — you can have a great time either way. Beginner walk through with casual instruction starts at 7:30 p.m., with music and dancing at 8 p.m. Even if you’re not a beginner, it’s great to come early to refresh your skills and help new dancers get the hang of it. Cost is $10 at the door, $8 for students.
