Love, and the aroma of fine Dutch chocolate, will be in the air at the Valentine’s Day Contra Dance at the Big Yellow Merville Hall, on Saturday, Feb. 16. So, wear your heart on your sleeve and whoop it up to the contra dance tunes of Funtime Fiddlers and guests while dance caller, June “Kissin” Cannon, coyly controls the dancers and keeps things hopping.
As usual, there will be a contra dance workshop right before the dance. From 7 to 7:29, June will introduce the swooning dancers to new moves as well as teach the basic steps.
At 7:30, on Cupid’s command, the Funtime Fiddlers will prance on stage, start the music and the gaiety begins. Single dancers and families are very welcome. Singles can pair up with anyone during the contras and the sets last about 15 to 20 minutes. There will be spot prizes, and a prize for the best dressed and most romantic couples.
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. FMI call 250-339-4249 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
