WEEKEND: Contra dance season kicks up its heels beginning Monday

Peninsula Daily News

A BUSIY MONTH lies ahead for contra dancers, as callers and bands are scheduled across the North Olympic Peninsula.

“We are going to be treated to a luxury level of good contra dancing over the next month,” said Tom Shindler with Black Diamond Dance.

The band Power House played with Amy Carroll calling a show at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday.

Perpetual e-Motion, a band Shindler called “amazing,” will play and Vermont caller Will Mentor will lead the dancers at a special dance in the Black Diamond Community Hall, 1942 Black Diamond Road in Port Angeles, at 6:30 p.m. Monday.

“These guys were a huge hit last year,” Shindler said. “Don't miss them this year.”

Suggested donation is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and teens and $5 for children younger than 13.

The Black Diamond dancers will open their regular season of first Saturday dances next week, with Red Crow playing and Laura Me Smith calling at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 6.

Suggested donation is $8, $4 for children younger than 18.

Internationally acclaimed contra caller Colin Hume leads a dance with music from the Rosewind Country Dance Band in Black Diamond at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 16.
