Slip into your greenest leprechaun leotard and mince on over to the Big Yellow Merville Hall (1245 Fenwick Rd., Merville) for the St. Patrick’s Day Ultra Green Contra Dance on Saturday, March 24.
The Funtime Fiddlers will provide the music for the highly popular contra dances, led by dance caller, June. All are welcome to attend this family friendly function.
If you appreciate an energetic evening, contra dancing is for you. Generally, there is a brief workshop right before the dance.
From 7 p.m. to 7:29, June will introduce the lucky dancers to new moves as well as teach the basic moves.
At 7:30, the Funtime Fiddlers prance onto the stage, start the music and the gaiety begins. Single dancers and families are welcome. Singles can pair up with anyone during the contras and our contra sets last about 15 to 20 minutes. In between the called contra dances, we’ll play waltzes and reels; jigs and swing tunes. Doors open at 7 p.m., dance starts at 7:30. Cost is $10/adults, $5/youth (6 and under free) $22/families.
