Go with the Flow: Workshops and Contras

  • Reality Ministries 916 Lamond Avenue Durham, NC, 27701 United States (map)

Do you wish you knew a few extra flourishes to throw into the mix while dancing? Do you feel like you don't really know the people you keep allemanding with? Waltzing could use a tune up? Sad that you don't get to dance two days in a row? Doctor Joel has a prescription for you!

The afternoon and evening of Saturday, July 27th (1 PM to 11 PM) will feature dancing and calling workshops, followed by a potluck dinner and wrapped up with an evening dance of contras and waltzes. Go ahead and mark your calendars!

We will have workshops with Eileen Thorsos, Steven Petersen and Sarah Chetty, with some assistance from others. The high-energy band Contraforce will provide hoppin' tunes for the evening dances.

Workshop schedule:
- Calling 101 (Eileen, et al) 1:00-2:15 PM
- Waltz Flow (Steven Petersen) from 2:30-3:45 PM
- Flourishes for Contras (Eileen Thorsos) from 4:00-5:30 PM
- Intermediate Contra (Sarah Chetty) from 7:30-8:00 PM before the main dance
