Chattanooga Traditional Dance Society (CTDS) sponsors its monthly Contra Dance open to all, featuring Georgia-based talent -- caller Janet Shepherd with music by Contraplicity (Stven Carlberg (keys), Bob Kirkman (bow), and Bill Porter (wind)) on Saturday, April 9 from 7:30 to 11:00 p.m., at Brainerd United Methodist Church’s Lundy Hall (4315 Brainerd Road). 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 music makes even sitting out enjoyable. Wear comfortable clothes and bring an extra pair of clean, soft-soled shoes for dancing. There will be a contra basics lesson for newcomers at the beginning of the dance -- so plan to arrive early!
