Contra dance in Jackson Jan. 9

Written by 

The next Second Sunday Contra Dance will be held at the Barkers Creek Community Building from 3-5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 9.

Contra dancing will begin at 3 p.m. There will also be a potluck dinner following the contra dance, starting at 6 p.m. Please bring a covered dish, plate, cup, cutlery and a water bottle.

The dance is free. Participants are encouraged to make a contribution toward the cost of renting the hall.

No previous experience with contra dancing is required and all dances will be taught and walked through before dancing. There will also be a short beginners’ workshop at the start of the dance. No partner is required.

Local musicians will play music for all the dances. Local musicians are invited to sit in with the band, to jam and learn how to play music for dancing.

The Barkers Creek Community Center is located at milepost 79 on U.S. 441 three miles north of Dillsboro. Coming from Sylva, make a U-turn just past milepost 79 to get in the southbound lanes.
