Contra dance set for Friday

Print Article

SANDPOINT — The Parks and Recreation Department has partnered with Emily Faulkner and Lost Horse Press to bring contra dancing to the community.

Contra dancing is community dancing for all ages, in the New England tradition, featuring live music with great local and regional bands and lively callers. Contras, circles, and occasionally squares or long ways sets are taught, called and danced in a friendly atmosphere.

Meet at Sandpoint Community Hall, 204 South First Ave., from 7-10:30 p.m., every second Friday of the month. This month’s contra dance is Sept. 14. Participants are asked to use the front door. Beginners and singles welcome; contra dance tradition holds that anyone can ask anyone to dance. New dancers are warmly encouraged to arrive in time for the beginning (we always start with the basics). If you can walk quickly, count to eight, and know right from left you can contra dance.

Light, comfortable clothing is suggested. Bring clean, soft-soled shoes, a water bottle, and a smile. Finger food snacks at the break are appreciated, and a $5 donation at the door is suggested as the musicians need to eat, too.

For other activities offered by the Parks and Recreation Department, go to sandpoint.gov/parksrecreation or visit the Parks and Recreatiion office, 1123 Lake St.
