We're gearing up for another series of contra dance classes, in conjunction with Missoula Parks & Recreation. The first series starts on Thursday, September 28 and goes through October 19. They will be held at the Missoula Senior Center (one of the nicest dance floors in town!) and the entire series costs only $15 per person - less than $4 a dance! To register, call 721-PARK (7275) or register in person at Currents, OR register online (link below) and use activity code 3363400 – 01. We need a minimum of 12 participants or else the class will be canceled. NOTE: There will also be a Continuing Contra class, starting the week after the first series ends, October 26-November 16. Same day of the week, same location, same time, same price, different activity code: 3363400 – 02
Here are descriptions of the classes:
Contra Dancing , Thursdays Sept 28-Oct 19 at the Senior Center
If you can walk and smile at the same time, you can contra dance. And there will be lots of dancing in this class. This 4-week series of classes will introduce participants to this community style of social dance that has its roots in American traditional music and dance. Each week the instructors from Missoula Folklore Society will guide participants through basic figures and moves for a fun evening of dancing. All ages welcome; partners not required; bring friends and family.
