Brooklyn Contra Dance with Mulberry Street and Jack Mitchell!
July 7 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm$15
Join us for a night of contra dancing with live music from Mulberry Street! If Swing dancing and Square dancing met in a bar, you’d get Contra! 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! There’s a lesson for new dancers at 7:30pm and the dance starts at 8!
Mulberry Street plays a mix of traditional, modern, and original tunes with fierce, soaring fiddle and pulsing accordion swing and harmonize around persuasive piano grooves, accented by driving foot percussion and hand drumming. Their influences draw from many well-worn avenues (and some odd little alleys), mixing their love for what’s come before with our urge to explore and create.
