Challenge Contra! Will Mentor and Riptide (Sunday Contra)

  • 23 Oct 2016
  • 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • Glen Echo Park Spanish Ballroom, Glen Echo, MD
Come on out to the Beautiful Glen Echo Spanish Ballroom at 3:00 pm on Sunday afternoon, October 23 and find yourself challenged to dance to some special contra dances chosen by caller extraordinaire Will Mentor and hot tunes by the amazing Maine band, Riptide, featuring Glen Loper on mandolin, Alden Robinson on fiddle, and Owen Marshall on guitar. A typical challenging session features dances with figures that might not be regularly encountered in an evening of dance. So be ready to challenge your brain and feet with star thru contra corners, backward progressions, left hand chains, and other odd delights.

You will advance your dance practice, be it through learning new moves, getting smoother on infrequent ones, or helping others to do so. Mostly it's a chance to dance your best and have fun! Informal potluck to follow, see you on the dance floor!
