Contra Dance feat. JoLaine Jones-Pokorney & Greasy String Band
Join us Friday, March 24 for a fun community contra dance! Gainesville’s gifted JoLaine Jones-Pokorney will be calling the dances and The Greasy String Band will be playing live tunes.
Tallahassee community contra dances have resumed in the Senior Center Ballroom on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month! Contra dancing is an upbeat, beginner-friendly American folk dance for all ages. It shares many moves with square dancing (such as swing your partner and do-si-do) and is danced in long lines to live music. The bands and callers vary each night. Come alone or bring friends–no partner or experience required. Those new to contra dancing are strongly encouraged to come by 7:15View more
Admission cost: $10 for Adults, $9 Seniors over 50, $6 for Students, Free for Kids under 12
Admission is payable by cash, check, or card at the door. Newcomers get in to your 2nd dance free!
