Good times rolling at Merville Hall

Fall is Fiddle time with another frolicking fiddle Contra dance at the Big Yellow Merville Hall this Saturday.

Fall is Fiddle time with another frolicking fiddle Contra dance at the Big Yellow Merville Hall this Saturday.

Duck in, out of the rain and wind, to the warm and cozy Merville hall where the Funtime Fiddlers are waiting to play your favourite dance tunes.

Contra dances are family friendly community dances where a caller directs everyone around the dance floor with much laughter and happiness. The steps are simple, well-organized and the caller even brings the wallflowers onto the floor. Single dancers are most welcome as they can pair up with anyone during the Contras.

Before the dance, from 7 to 7:30 p.m., there will be a Contra Dance workshop as well as some instruction in basic waltz patterns. The workshops are free of charge so plan to come early.

At 7:30, the Funtime Fiddlers start the music with Contra sets lasting about 15 to 20 minutes per dance. In between the called Contra dances, we’ll play waltzes, foxtrots, swing tunes and polkas. We’ve got something for everyone at this kitchen party.

We’ll have the new heating system cranked up so the atmosphere will be warm, friendly and welcoming. The Big Yellow Merville Hall is right on the Old Island Highway between Campbell River and Courtenay.

Doors open at 6:45; dancing starts at 7:30.

For more information, phone 250-339-4249.
