Portland Intown Contra Dance

July 20, 2017, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Contra dance with music by The Women’s Guild and caller Dela Taylor at the State Street Church near Longfellow Square.

The Women’s Guild is a special treat that happens at most once a year when Gabrielle Lanza and Kristen Planeaux from Cincinnati, Ohio visit and join forces with Liz Faiella from New Hampshire.  To complete the reenactment of the famed and successful dance at this time last year at this venue, rising star Dela Taylor will be calling with them, perhaps throwing in a bit of poetry.  See the PICD website for more info.

This event is part of the weekly Thursday night Portland Intown Contra Dance series.

Dance roles are gender-free. New and experienced dancers of all ages are invited.

$10 at the door.  Enter through the courtyard.

Lesson for first-time dancers at 7:00; dance 7:30-10:00.

Parking is free after 6pm on street around the State Street/West End neighborhood. We recommend budgeting time to find a spot.

Join the Portland Intown Contra Dance Facebook Group for updates and discussion.
