Preview: Dance Band Night – Contradance

July 6, 2015admin

With the great sweltering summer comes great responsibility to stay cool, or so you might think. The nights may be steamy but that doesn’t stop true culture addicts like Rhythm Foundation from turning the heat up a notch with the third installment of their Dance Band Night series. This time, the evening will take a nostalgic turn for Americana roots through a night dedicated to line and square dancing with Contradance.

This Thursday, July 9th you’ll be line dancing Elementary School style carried by the tunes of folk group, Cornbread as you’re led by dance master, Anita Mason. You’ll learn the classic country dance moves of yesteryear like the two-step, western promenade, and something you can dance along to “Cotton-Eyed Joe” with. The great thing about line dancing is you don’t need a partner so if you can’t find a friend to tag along with, there’s no excuse to miss out!

The North Beach Bandshell will be taking the patriotic theme seriously this time around, they’ll even be serving succulent, grilled goodies from Passion BBQ on-site. Wash that down with a cold brew and you have yourself a pretty fine Thursday night. Remember, Dance Band Night is free and open to the community. Dancers of all levels and ages are welcome, and a $5 donation is suggested but not mandatory.

See you there and make sure to come with your swankiest boogie oogie shoes!
