Join us for an (air-conditioned) night of Contra Dancing with David Sidman’s Elastic Band Celtic Edition and Maia McCormick!

Ann Murphy – fiddle
Chris Carpenter – mandolin, tin whistle and banjo
Colin Forhan – rhythm guitar, banjo
David Sidman – lead guitar, percussion

WHAT IS CONTRA DANCING?

If Swing dancing and Square dancing met in a bar, you’d get Contra!

Contra dancing is a type of community folk dance. You’ll dance to live music with a partner, but bringing a partner is not necessary. Contra Dancing is a great way to meet new people!

More info can be found at www.brooklyncontra.org

Folks who haven’t danced before are encouraged to attend the introductory lesson at 7:30pm, which is followed by dancing for everyone from 8:00 to 11:00pm.

To maintain the beautiful floor at Camp Friendship, please bring clean, soft-soled shoes. Hard soles and heels are very hard on our floor.

General admission is $15 and student tickets are $12

Volunteers dance for FREE – if you’re interested in volunteering, please email us at brooklyncontra@gmail.com
