Our friends in Walla Walla are offering some dance options.

Walla Walla Friends of Acoustic Music will be sponsoring a Pandemic Contra Dance on Saturday afternoon, April 17 from 2-4 pm in Pioneer Park. Live musicians and lively dancers!

It's by invitation only, so please let them know if you and your intimate partner would like to come. All dancers are masked, wear gloves, and maintain social distance except with a partner you’re intimate with. Waltzing and swings with a non-intimate partner are always done with a sash to maintain necessary distancing.

Videos of current dances are at www.wwfam.org. In addition to the circles and contras shown, they’ve now added waltzes, a reel, and a square.

Interested? Contact Dan and Barbara Clark at clarkdb@charter.net, or call 509-522-0399.
Welcome back to the dance!

Since everything still is in a state of flux depending on developments with Covid, we wanted to share a couple of links to some YouTube contra dance videos for those needing a contra dance fix:

Here's the first - This one is more traditional, with great dancing, band and calling!

  and

Here's the second - this one has more modern music with Perpetual E-motion and really, really fun flourishes and improvised dance moves - these are some great dancers! I encourage you to watch to the end if you like the music, you'll get to see the musician play a bit too!
