Welcome to Blue Ridge Country Dancers contra dance page with information and scheduling for our Floyd contra dances. It's not necessary to bring a partner, but we do insist on clean, soft-soled shoes. All dances are taught; beginners are welcome. The caller will conduct a beginner's workshop before the dance.
Blue Ridge Country Dancers sponsor the second Saturday contra dance in Floyd at the Floyd Center for the Arts, 220 Parkway Lane South, Floyd, Va - 1/2 mile south of the stoplight in Floyd on Rt 8 South. This is the big, barn building on the right just past the car dealership. We will be dancing on the oak dance floor in the community room on the second floor.
We ask dancers to have vaccinations and at least one booster. If you have been vaccinated and want to dance, and have not done this already, please send a copy of your vaccination information to marcia.winters(at)yahoo.com
