Costume English/Contra/Square Dance Party!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Like to move your body? Want to try some new old dance styles? Like to dress in fancy or wacky costumes? How about a chance to do all these at once?

Come join Renée Camus and Cindy Lu for a group event bringing together costuming and dancing! Wear your favorite costume finery of any sort, be it historical, fantasy, sci-fi, fairy tales, vintage, or just wackadoodle! Anything goes, as long as you can move in it. Show off your raiments while dancing lots of easy group social dances, including English country dances, contra dances, square dances, perhaps a Scottish country or Irish ceilidh dance, and hopefully a Grand March—the ultimate dance for showing off your wares. This is a true community event, where everyone can participate, even if you’ve never done it before. No partner or experience necessary. And if you'd prefer not to wear a costume, that's fine too! While this is a social event more than a class, the group dances will all be taught. We might even throw in a few swings, one-steps, or waltzes too.

Do you play an instrument? Consider being a part of our open band! We plan to use recorded music, but if people are interested in playing for the dance, we might make that happen too (I’m in talks with someone about leading this Open Band). Let us know if you’d like to play, as well as dance.
