PORT ANGELES — The Electrodes will play, with Abigail Hobart calling, at the Black Diamond Contra Dance on Saturday.

A beginner and review workshop will start at 7:30 p.m. with dancing at 8 p.m. at the Black Diamond Community Hall, 1942 Black Diamond Road.

An $8 donation is requested for adult admission and $4 for those younger than 18.
