This time around, the Rhythm Rollers band plus dance caller Tony Mates are coming over from Seattle to the hall at 1942 Black Diamond Road.
Admission is a suggested $7 for adults or $3 for those 17 and younger.
That includes the beginners’ workshop in New England-style contra dancing at 7:30 p.m.
After a half-hour of dance instruction and practice, the Rhythm Rollers — Laurie Andres on accordion, Cathie Whitesides on fiddle and WB Reid on banjo, fiddle and guitar — will step up.
And Mates, a seasoned dance caller known for his clear delivery and good humor, will keep people moving from 8 p.m. till 11 p.m.
To find out more about Black Diamond dances, phone 360-477-7222.
