Cville Hoedown Contra Dance

Location:

Community-Wide

Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music, Sports & Recreation
Organization: Albemarle Chapter of the Country Dance and Song Society, Inc.
Description: Dance traditional American "contra" dances, to live music: fiddle, flutes, and piano.
Contra dances are like square dances, except that they are danced with the couples
arranged longways in the hall, instead of arranged in a square formation.
The dances date to the 1700's in America.
They enjoyed a revival in the late 1960's and they are still going strong!
They are a great way to get exercise and make new friends at the same time.
All dances will be taught. No experience needed, and no need to bring partner.
Just bring a smile!
Adults $10, students $5.
Beginner's session at 7 pm, dancing for all from 7:30 to 9:30.
At the Front Porch, 221 Water Street East in downtown Charlottesville.
A parking stamp is available for two hours' free parking in the parking garage.
