Brooklyn Contra Dance
Brooklyn Lyceum (227 4th Ave., Brooklyn)
7:30pm beginner lesson, dance begins at 8pm
Contra dancing is simple to learn yet sustains a high level of good clean fun for hours (years, even, as most who try it get hooked right away). For this dance, which is Brooklyn Contra’s 2nd birthday, we’re bringing one of the most talented young dance callers working today (Maggie Jo Saylor from Asheville, NC) all the way up from the Blue Ridge Mountains to teach y’all how to contra. Plus, the Brooklyn Lyceum has a great floor and there’s live music from a local Brooklyn old-time band.
