Contra dancing is easy relaxed fun, and though the figures are done with a partner, singles are always welcome.

We will be dancing at the Jacksonville Center for the Arts, 1/2 mile from the stoplight in Floyd on Rt 8 South. They are delighted to have us. We will be dancing in the community room. It is large enough, has a wood floor, nice lighting and ambiance, handicapped access, newly paved parking lot, and did I mention they really want us there! Dance information: 540 489-1826.
