Next Dance                                                                                                                         Saturday October 3, 2015! See the sidebar for fall dates in 2015.

Change of the seasons                                                                                                                 Back to school, back from vacation, it seems that our society is more geared to September as the start of a new year than January.  The last year of dancing was a great one, and we’re looking to build on that success.  We’ve had a number of newer dancers come out and stick around, and we’d like to have some of our more experienced dancers come and renew their joy for the dance form.  We’ve missed you!

We have a good time every night, but the energy is so much more enjoyable and palpable when we have a crowd.  I’d like to encourage you all to come on our and be a part of our community.

Tutorial                                                                                                                                     Here’s an interesting tutorial on the Buzz Step Swing, the standard Contra swing.

Flash Mob!                                                                                                                                   This is an amateur video from a flash mob earlier this month in Washington Square Park in New York City.  Could something like this be done here?  If so, where?
