November 1st Contradance

Our November dance will be Friday November 1st. Calling will be Bob Nicholson to the music of Crooked Sixpence.

Crooked Sixpence is a group featuring Kathy Selby on fiddle, pianist John Wobus and flutist Gordon Bonnet. Kathy, a native of England, brings her skills in fiddling Irish, Scottish and Quebecois tunes, Gordon reflects his Louisiana upbringing in his love of French and Breton music and John adds his years of experience as a contradance pianist. They create a spirited sound of traditional tunes as well as new compositions, which blend into a great night of dancing! See more about Kathy on her website

Bob is well known throughout upstate New York for his relaxed teaching style, patience, energy, and ability to make the dance fun. He has a knack for making newcomers feel welcome and proficient, helping them through more complicated moves. At the same time, he keeps experienced dancers challenged and enjoying the dance.

If you have thought about trying contradancing, this is a great time to do it1 But be sure to come on time, since there is more instruction during the earlier, simpler dances.
