Contra Dance

When: 9pm Saturday, April 1st

Where: American Legion Hall, 209 Monroe St, Port Townsend, WA, 98368

Price: $5 suggested donation

Back in the early days of Port Townsend, down on the waterfront, far from any gentry in their bustles and toppers, the simpler folk would have gotten together to dance. Their dances were probably a bit more frisky. Call it square dance or contra dance, it was the dance of the people. And the beauty of it is you don’t have to worry about doing it right so long as you’re having fun. We’re hoping you’ll come out and join us for a turn or two.

The evening’s entertainment features music by Broken Dreams with caller Jeanie Murphy for the contra dance. Watch for special guest performers. Broken dreams has been delighting music enthusiasts and dancers alike for years.
