The Folklore Society of Greater Washington presents an afternoon of Challenging Squares & Contras. Today Alex Deis-Lauby calls to The Ripples.

 

A typical challenging session features dances with figures that might not be regularly encountered in an evening of dance. So be ready to challenge your brain and feet with star thru contra corners, backward progressions, left hand chains, and other odd delights.

You will advance your dance practice, be it through learning new moves, getting smoother on infrequent ones, or helping others to do so. Mostly it’s a chance to dance your best and have fun!
