Jan 21, 2013

The next fourth Sunday Community Dance will be this Sunday, Jan. 27. The dance will be held at The Gateway Club, 37 Church St, Waynesville, and will include folk, ballroom and contra dancing will begin from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Tom Calwell and Myra Hirschberg will call the dance to the music of Out of the Woodwork. 

All dances are done to live music and local musicians are invited to sit in with the band, to jam and learn how to play music for dancing.

No previous experience with contra dancing is necessary and all dances will be taught and walked through before dancing. No partner is required.

Contra dancing is a form of English country dancing and uses many of the same figures as square dancing such as circles, stars and swings. Information about the dance is available at:
