Enjoy dancing to great live music at the Coos Bay Senior Center on Saturday evening, March 3, from 7-10PM. All ages are welcome to this public event which features music by the Outstanding Open Band, and dance calling lead by Stacy Rose of Coos Bay. Contra dancing is a light-hearted form of social dancing that is easy to learn and fun for all ages. The Contra Dance will be held at the Senior Center activity room which is located at 4th and Ingersoll in Coos Bay. Singles, couples and families will all enjoy contra dancing, and new dancers are always welcome.
The Folk Society has arranged for The Outstanding Open Band, an all-volunteer group of talented local musicians, to play lively contra tunes and waltzes. Their skill and energy create the perfect atmosphere to swing your partner and do-se-do your neighbor. It’s fun. Wear your dancing shoes, casual clothes, and a big smile.
Stacy Rose, a personable and very popular caller with many years of experience, will teach dancers every step and figure throughout the evening starting with a lesson at 7PM. Stacy will also be offering a callers’ workshop at the Senior Center from 3-5PM in the afternoon on March 3rd. Her workshop is free and open to the public. Calling is an integral part of contra dancing, and everyone can benefit from learning more about how a dance is called. Please come and be a volunteer dancer to help new callers.
