(Wolfeboro, NH) The Community Contra Dance Series hosted by Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.) continues on Saturday, February 23rd, at the Wolfeboro Town Hall’s “Great Hall”. Dances runs from 7:00 to 10:00pm, with the first half hour dedicated to a brief overview of the basic steps of New England contra dance. Dances are a fun and energizing night out for all ages and abilities, even if you simply prefer to cheer the dancers on from the sidelines.
Puckerbrush is an acoustic string band, based out of Eaton, NH, that plays for contradances and other social events in Conway, Tamworth, and surrounding NH and ME areas. Band members are Jeanine Loubier, from Waterford, ME, playing fiddle, mandolin and keyboard; Candace Maher, from Eaton, NH, playing cello, accordion, flute, and penny whistle; and Peter Kimball, from Ossipee, NH, playing guitar and providing lead vocals.
Dance admission fees are as follows: $8.00 for adults, $5.00 for 6yr-18yr olds, and 5yr and under free. Anyone experiencing financial hardship is invited to pay what they can and no one will be turned away for financial reasons. In an effort to protect the wood floor in the Great Hall participants are encouraged to bring an extra pair of shoes for dancing that do not have a black sole.
G.A.L.A. is also looking to fill a few volunteer shifts for the dances this year if you are interested. For more information about this event or to sign up to volunteer visit their website at www.galacommunity.org, call the office at 603-569-1500, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
