Portland Intown Contra Dance

August 17, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10

Contra dance with music by White Mountain Ceilí Band and caller Gretchen Hanes at the State Street Church near Longfellow Square.

The White Mountain Ceilí Band (Dexter Harding on tenor banjo, Fiona Howell on flute, Siena Kaplan-Thompson on fiddle, and Mike Levine on guitar and concertina) is visiting us for the first time from New Hampshire, though Siena played for us with a different band last May.  Gretchen Hanes (formerly Gretchen Carroll) is back to call her second full evening of contra dance.  She’s a rising star!  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.
