Community Contra Dance in Merville Saturday

Valentine's Day Dance one week later

There will still be lots of romance in the air at the Valentine’s Day Community Contra Dance at the Big Yellow Merville Hall in romantic, downtown Merville.

On Saturday, Feb. 21, there won’t be just candy kisses as you dance to the contra dance tunes of the Funtime Fiddlers, with June Cannon calling the dances.

Before the dance, from 7-7:30 p.m., there will be a contra dance workshop. The workshop is free of charge so plan to come early.

At 7:30 p.m., the Funtime Fiddlers take to the stage, bat their eyelashes to the crowd and start the music.

Single dancers are most welcome as they can pair up with anyone during the contras and our contra sets last about 15 minutes per dance.

In between the called contra dances, there will be waltzes, foxtrots, polkas, all showcasing some hot young fiddlers.

Doors open at 7, dance starts at 7:30 p.m.  Cost is $10/adults, $5/youth (6 and under free) and you can come as a family for $22.

For more info, call 250-339-4249.
