Chattanooga Traditional Dance Society (CTDS) presents its monthly Contra Dance Open to All, featuring calling by Matt Hawkins and music by Evan Kinney & the Fly By Nights on Saturday, October 8 from 7:30 to 11:00 p.m., at the Brainerd United Methodist Church / Lundy Hall (4315 Brainerd Road) in Chattanooga. Admission is $8; $5 for students.
Everyone is invited to join our welcoming, family-friendly community and enjoy this lively, traditional social dance. No partners are necessary. All dances are taught in walk-throughs. Toe-tapping live music makes even sitting out enjoyable. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes and bring an extra pair of clean, soft-soled shoes for dancing. Note: hard-soled boots or shoes are not allowed on the dance floor.
There is always a contra basics lesson for newcomers at the beginning of the dance -- so plan to arrive early!
