Introduction to English Country Dance especially for experienced Contra dancers"

Join us for a wild afternoon of elegant dances called by Tom Amessé and lovely music played in ridiculous ways by Giant Robot Dance! Stately Baroque piano combines with mind-blowing electric guitar and dueling trombones to satisfy your inner rock child while you float gracefully around the dance floor. So whether you grew up in the 1690s or the 1990s, this is an event not to be missed!

A sample of the afternoon’s shenanigans: “Emperor of the Moon”, Ballroom Blum, calling by Melissa Running
