Swing into Spring Contra Dance
Friday, April 22, 2016
Grinnell College's Contra Dance club is holding its Second Annual Contra Dance at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 22. The free, public event will take place in Main Quad Dining Hall.
The dance will feature live music by Can I Get an Amen, one of Chicago's foremost folk bands. Nikki Herbst, a renowned contra dancer from Iowa, will be calling the social dances.
Contra dance is an American folk tradition, similar to square dancing. Fun for both skilled and beginner dancers, this live dance is a unique opportunity to experience one of America's folk traditions firsthand.
Grinnell welcomes and encourages the participation of people with disabilities. You can request accommodations from Conference Operations and Events.
This event is supported by the Grinnell Department of Music with funds from the Terri Thaler ’82 Memorial Endowment.
