Dance your way to happiness at Tinmouth’s contra

Come to an exuberant winter evening contra dance with Mary Wesley calling the dances and live music with Randy Miller on fiddle and Roger Kahle on guitar at the Tinmouth Community Center on Friday, Jan. 25 from 8-11 p.m.

What is a contra dance? A contra dance uses square dance moves, but is done in long lines to live music. All dances are taught and you do not need a partner. Beginners are always welcome. Dances become more challenging as the night progresses, so early arrival is recommended for beginning dancers.

The dance takes place in the Tinmouth Community Center, Rte 140 in the center of Tinmouth, Vt., 5 miles west of Wallingford. Dancing takes place on the fourth Friday of the month. Please bring clean, non-marring shoes.

Admission is $9, $7 for teens and free for children 12 and under. Refreshments will be available. Call 235-2718 for info or directions or www.Tinmouthvt.org for directions.
