While there are no regular contra dances at this time, we suggest you come to the Old Time Jams at the Blue Tavern, where you can listen to fine music, get some food and drink, and maybe dance with a partner a little!  The Jams are often held outdoors on the back patio.

Jams are held on 2nd and/or 4th Saturday of each month, 4:00 -6:00 pm, 1206 N. Monroe St.  See the Facebook page, or contact Mary at maryallgire "at" yahoo "dot" com

There are plans to resume contra dances on a limited basis sometime in the next few months, depending on conditions.
