Contra 101 FREE Workshop Today!

4-6pm with Warren Doyle

Leading the workshop will be Warren Doyle from Mountain City, TN. Warren has over 40 years of experience as an educator, contra dancer, dance instructor/caller and dance event organizer.
To help maintain, and improve, the overall dancing level in Jonesborough and in the region by discussing, and demonstrating:

a) Importance of listening, timing and grace (gentle strength) in dancing
b) Barriers common to smooth and joyful movement
b) Challenges of creative, individual movement within the collective structure
c) Reasons why people contra dance

The class/workshop will be relaxed but meaningful with a healthy balance of discussion and dancing. Not only are beginners welcome, but also experienced dancers who wish more in depth training in the art of contra dance.
