Come and dance!

We have been invited to hold a free contra dance 7 pm this Friday (6/3) at Crows Feet Commons in Drake Park. It will be held on the same day as the first Friday Art Walk – parking may be a bit scarce, but it could give our dances some good exposure to the general public. Everyone is invited to participate so it would be great to have some experienced dancers to help out the new dancers.
This will be held outdoors on the patio so wear comfortable shoes (try to keep the twirls to a minimum). Some will remember Crows Feet Commons as the art gallery next to the Drake Park parking lot overlooking the river.
We hope you can make it!

***News – We will be making a transition to a new location for our dances this fall 2016!!! ***

The Pine Forest Grange has agreed to house our dances this coming year. Located just off the parkway at the Empire exit, it has good acoustics and ample parking (no stairs to navigate).

Thank you for a great dance season! Our dances will continue in October. In the meantime, check out our Facebook page for contra related events.  We had a great time at Crows Feet Commons on June 3rd, we hope to have a few more events there this summer.

We can use your help – if you’d like to help put on the dances as a regular volunteer or board member, or just want to join our mailing list, send us a line at bendcontra@gmail.com.

Our dances are alcohol and smoke-free. Clean, soft-soled shoes are appreciated. Dances in Bend are held autumn through spring. Our events are open to everyone! Admission is $8 per person with a special rate for families and students. Children 10 and under are free, but must be accompanied and supervised by a paying adult.
