Outermost Contra Dance
September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Outermost Contra Dance welcomes back local caller and musicians John Alden, Rose Clancy and Max Cohen. John will be teaching each dance and will present a mix of contras, mixers and squares. Dancers appreciate John’s humorous and friendly style of calling.
John will be accompanied this month by an incredibly talented duo: Rose Clancy on fiddle and Max Cohen on guitar. Rose Clancy is Chatham’s well known fiddler, performer, fiddle maker, teacher and session musician (https://www.chathamfiddlecompany.com/rose-clancy-fiddler). Max Cohen is an accomplished finger-style guitarist, vocalist and accompanist (https://www.maxcohenmusic.com/max/).
Contra dancing is the older cousin to the square dance. No fancy footwork needed – if you can walk, you can dance! All the dances are taught and called. If you’re new to contra dance, be sure to get in on the early dances for the basic moves.
Come to dance or come just to listen. All are welcome. Admission is $15, $10 for those under 30, $5 with student ID! Vaccination cards are required, and local mask protocols will be observed.
