Informal Contra In Davis Square V

May 26th, 2011
calling, contra  [html]
The dance last night in davis square went really well. We had a great turnout of all three major food groups: no one had to call too many times, musicians could take turns dancing, and there were plenty of people to dance with.

We tried the redundant volunteer calling thing, which seemed to go well. I wrote out nine dances ahead of time with full calls (odt) (pdf) and when we did those dances we had backup callers on the opposite side as the main caller. I think it worked well. We couldn't do it all that much, though, because several callers had their own dances which weren't on the list.

We had enough people that we did la bastringue with two concentric circles, which we'd not had enough to do before.
