We're back at the Apple Barn! 2 events this Saturday, April 20th. A workshop and our monthly dance.

CONTRA 101 Workshop - A free, in-depth workshop for contra dance beginners and experienced dancers who wish to fine-tune their dance skills. 

A free, three-hour workshop on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at the Apple Barn in Valle Crucis from 3:00pm-6:00pm.   Adults, teens, and children are welcome. No pre-registration is required.

Warren Doyle will be leading the workshop. This workshop is to help maintain and improve the skill of dancers in the Boone dance community by discussing, and demonstrating: 
a) Importance of listening, timing, and grace (gentle strength) in dancing 
b) Barriers common to smooth and joyful movement 
b) Challenges of creative, individual movement within the collective structure 
c) Reasons why people contra dance 

The workshop will be relaxed but meaningful with a healthy balance of discussion and dancing. Not only are beginners welcome, but also experienced dancers who wish more in depth training in the art of contra dance.  Wear comfortable shoes with minimal tread.

After the workshop, our evening dance!
