Have a great time dancing the night away with the Big Moose Band at the Jesup Memorial Library on Saturday, October 26 starting at 6:30 p.m. The caller for this month’s dance is Mike Fay.
For the first hour, there is free dance where beginners can learn the steps and dancers can brush up on their contra dance knowledge. Even if you have danced before, it is a great time to come and have fun. Fay will teach and lead all the dances, which gives everyone a chance to try out contra dancing in a friendly atmosphere. From 7:30 p.m. on there is an $8 requested donation per person, or $25 per family to help pay the caller. There is no cover charge for children under 12. This event is great for dancers and non-dancers alike, contra dancing is easy to learn and Fay will teach dancers all the moves they need to know. You do not need a partner to dance and everyone is invited to join in on the fun.
The Big Moose Band provides the amazing music that you will dance along with. Big Moose features some of the area’s finest musicians including Ruth Grierson, Keith Davis, Jim Vekasi, Charlie Richardson, Fred Benson, Ed Damm and Anne Damm, among others.
