Helena Contra Dance and Family Dance
5:30 PM
Free Ceramics Studio
Helena Contra Dancers are hosting a Family Dance for ‘children’ of all ages. Family dances are easy for everyone to learn, even very young children. The Family Dance is from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Our regular Contra Dance begins at 7:30 pm with a workshop. New dancers are encouraged to attend the workshop. We plan to have light snacks available between the dances.

Wendy Graham from Durango, Colorado, is the caller for the evening. Self-described “dance maniac,” Wendy leads English, American, and partner dancing at events, weekends and week-long camps in the southwest, throughout the USA, and abroad - including England and Denmark.

Sassafras Stomp with Adam Nordel on guitar and foot percussion and Johanna Davis on fiddle is the band for the evening. The band is well known in the dance community, but especially in Helena, Adam’s hometown. Their music draws from New England, Appalachian, and Quebecois traditions and their own compositions.
