UPCOMING MONTHLY QUIET CORNER CONTRA DANCES
July and August, no HCD Quiet Corner Contra dances as we break for the summer.
Friday, September 7, for the kickoff dance of our new season we welcome back The French Connection, playing “traditional contra dance tunes with a French accent.” (More about them here.) The caller will be Sandy LaFleur.
Friday, October 5, we’ll be dancing to the father-and-son duo The Fiddling Thomsons, with Damaris Rohsenow. Enjoy a sample of their music here and read about the Thompsons here. Jim Gregory will be the caller.
HCD Quiet Corner Contra dances are held on the first Friday of each month (except no dances in July and August) at the Patriots Park Lodge, Coventry, from 8:00–11:00 p.m., with a free workshop for beginners from 7:45–8:00. We have a live band at all our dances, and each dance is taught and prompted by a caller. Our dances are smoke-, alcohol-, and fragrance-free. Find our more about contra dancing in general here, and read about our other monthly contra dance, the HCD 2nd-Saturday Contra dance here.
The regular adult admission for our monthly contra dances is $12. Students (with ID, please) are asked to pay $6, and children 12 and under are admitted free of charge. There is no additional charge for the home-made refreshments we provide, nor is there an extra fee for enjoying the awesome view of Coventry Lake. If our admission charges represent a hardship for you, please let us know. We are willing to work with you.
