Contra dance #1

Filed under: 1 — Kathryn Colestock-Burke @ 9:03 am

Moabites create their own wonderful brand of fun, which I discovered last night.

You like Anglo-Celtic music? Jigs and reels are performed by a happy group of old hippies an accomplished live band, and a caller teaches steps similar to square dance steps, only more aerobic and lively. Two long lines, gents on one side, ladies on the other, are the form for these English country dances. They are alcohol-free, happen monthly, and last about three hours. Now all I need is a twirly skirt from the thrift shop.

[Will remember camera for next month’s dance.]
