  • Fourth Saturday Contra Dance in Cambridge

    January 26th, 2012
    contra  [html]
    Back in September I got really excited about starting a new weekly contra dance in the city. [1] I can report some progress on this: the 4th Saturday dance is moving to Cambridge, and their first dance in the new hall is this weekend:
    Saturday January 28th
    5 Cadbury Road, Cambridge
    Cambridge Friends School Meeting Hall
    8-11pm; $8 ($6 for students under 21)

    Calling by Daniel Friedman
    Music by Julie Metcalf, Debby Knight, and Walter Lenk
    (facebook event, website)
    It's a 10-15 minute walk from the Porter Square red line stop, and also walkable from Alewife, Harvard, and Davis. There is also parking.
    I'm looking forward to dancing with you all!


    [1] I'm still talking to BIDA about having our dance more often. We're penciled in for first Sundays at the Masonic Hall starting in the Spring, and at our next meeting I'm going to try to convince people that we should commit. One big reason people don't want to go weekly is then it's harder to do special events like Spark in the Dark or English/Contra without being the same weekend as our regular dance.
