HONESDALE, PA — On Saturday, June 22, there will be a contra dance from 7:30 to 10 p.m. at The Cooperage.
Contra dance is a form of traditional American set dancing with long lines of couples facing each other. Over the course of a dance each couple moves up and down the hall, interacting with the other couples in their line. The steps themselves, which are simple and easy to learn, are similar to those used in traditional square dances. A caller first teaches the figures to be done in each dance, and then ‘calls’ the dance as the music is played by live musicians.
This dance will feature music by The Ragtag Rutabagas with caller Laurie B. Come with or without a partner. Beginners are always welcome. Suggested donation is $10, kids under 15 free.
