This is our end-of-the-year celebration of all the great things we’ve been doing in the Harvest House all year! A combination of Roots Contra, the Callers Collective, and Community Waltz. We will dance to the music of Laura Lengnick, Karen Gaughan, and some of the musicians who regularly play for the 4th Sunday waltz nights, with calling by Diane Silver and several of the up-and-coming callers from the callers collective. Dances that may be danced throughout the evening include older and more modern contras, squares, waltzes, and other partner dances, such as schottische and hambo.

Please make a donation at the door.
