Special fundraiser contra dance with music by Barefoot and caller Dugan Murphy at the State Street Church near Longfellow Square. Also waltz workshop by Alex Hennings.

Alex Hennings will be leading a waltz workshop at 7:00.
See the PICD website for more info.
This event is a special dance to raise funds to purchase a sound system for the weekly Thursday-night Portland Intown Contra Dance series. Having an in-house sound system will mean performers get paid more, the quality of sound will be more consistent, and we will be able to build a broader base of sound techs to run the equipment at each weekly dance.
Dance roles are gender-free. New and experienced dancers of all ages are invited.
$20 at the door. Enter through the courtyard.
Waltz workshop instruction at 7:00; dance 7:30-11:00pm.
Parking is free after 6pm on street around the State Street/West End neighborhood. We recommend budgeting time to find a spot.
