HAYC3 and Dance Flurry Partner to Offer Contra Dancing, November 2

Hoosick Falls, NY—HAYC3, in partnership with Dance Flurry, will host its first Contra Dance on Friday, November 2, 2018, at the HAYC3 Armory. The dance will start at 8:00PM, with a beginner session stepping off at 7:30PM.

According to Executive Director Aelish Nealon, “HAYC3 is always looking for new experiences for its community members and for ways to use the varied spaces in our 130-year-old Armory” at 80 Church Street, Hoosick Falls, New York. “When we learned about the popularity of contra dancing, we wanted to learn more and reached out to Dance Flurry.” The result, a partnership HAYC3 and Dance Flurry imagine will grow as more people get interested in contra dancing and more events are offered at the Armory.

This fun, all-ages-welcome event is a little like square dancing. It involves live band music and a caller (Fern Bradley) who ‘calls out’ the steps and patterns. It’s easy to learn and a great way to engage with neighbors and friends, both new and old.

Join HAYC3 and Dance Flurry at the Armory, a handicap-accessible space that offers a beautiful wood floors. Come on your own, or bring a partner! General admission at the door is $12 (or $10 for full-time college students, seniors 65+, and DFO Members).
