Free Contra Dance at Sixes Grange on JUNE 16

The Curry County Cultural Coalition is pleased to announce another free public Curry Contra Dance at the Sixes Grange Hall on Saturday evening, June 16 from 7 – 10 p.m.!

Did you miss the first Curry Contra Dance at the Sixes Grange in April?  Over 70 folks of all ages had a good old fashioned time, gathering as a community to enjoy dance, live music, and each others company!

Don’t miss the next dance, coming up on June 16.  The South Coast Folk Society will bring back The Outstanding Open Band, with over a dozen very talented musicians all from the South Coast.  Karen Olsen, a skilled caller with many years of experience, will teach, and then call all the dances. Side of the Tide Morris Dances will also provide entertainment during the break.

Don’t fret if you can’t bring a partner to dance!  A partner will be found for you.  Even if you do come with a dancing partner, at a Contra Dance you can exchange partners regularly.  Singles, couples and families can all enjoy contra dancing.  And don’t worry if you don’t know how to do this sort of dancing:  at the last event, almost half of the attendees (including little grade school kids) had never contra danced before, were taught the moves, and had a great time!

Put on your dancing shoes, wear light comfortable clothing, and come and dance with us!

How blessed we are to have the Curry County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural Trust to bring Contra Dancing to our community!  Doors open at 6:45, and refreshments will be served.  For information on the Curry Contra Dances call Kristi at 541-332-9295 or Jo at 541-348-2174.

The South Coast Folk Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, dedicated to the preservation, study, teaching, enjoyment, and continuing evolution of traditional and historical dance, music and song.
