Swingin’ Tern Contra Dances

November 5, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$5 – $15

Contra dancing with Don Flaherty, one of the founders of Swingin’ Tern Dances. Don is well-known for his prolific creation of new contra dances. His dances are called by dozens of callers across the country. Don is sure to keep us moving with his gems that have become part of the contra tradition along with a debut or two of his freshly choreographed dances.

Tonight’s live band, Jaybird, brings contra dance mayhem — infused with the blues. Highly rhythmic and satisfying dance music to inspire your feet…and go to your head. Jaybird features Sam Zygmuntowicz on fiddle; Jody Kruskal on Anglo concertina; and Bill Peek on piano.

Beginner’s Workshop before the dance, 7:00pm – 7:30pm.

COVID-19 policy: Participants must show proof that they have been fully vaccinated for more than two weeks. Masking is optional.

If Morris County’s COVID-19 Community Level goes up to Orange, then masking will be required.
