Join the First Friday fun on May 3 at the Irish Cultural Center, 1106 N. Central, just north of Roosevelt. We’ll be hosting a contra dance for all ages in the Great Hall. Contra dances are open community dances much like old barn dances from New England. Everyone is welcome, you don’t need a partner, and you don’t need to have danced before to join in. All the dances are called as you dance, so it’s fun and super easy. From around 6:30 until 9:30 pm, drop in with your family and your friends and check out the vibrant scene.

Contra dance music is a mix of Celtic, French-Canadian, New England and Appalachian tunes, mixed together with a little Eastern European/Calypso/Middle Eastern/rock/swing to spice things up and get you dancing! The ICC will rock to the groove music of Commotion, the local traditional acoustic band. Commotion features Bryan Flamig on fiddle and drums, Leslie Nelson on fiddle, Laura Davidson on pennywhistle and sax, Linda Nieman on keyboard, and Bill Lytle on guitar, mandolin, and banjo. Follow the expert calls of Peg Hesley as she guides the choreography, getting the whole crowd moving together in circles, lines, and squares. Come with a crowd or come alone, but be sure to check out the First Friday community contra dance!
