DC Square Dance Collective square dance this Saturday

Grab your partner, do-si-do! There's another square dance coming up, and judging from the photo it looks pretty fun. Here's more details:

Hey, DC! It's time again for us to join hands and dance the night away. Join us on June 9 for all the things that make a summer evening right: hot tunes, cool drinks, clapping hands, and scootin' feet. Yep, it's a bona-fide old-fashioned square dance, with do-si-dos and partner swings and plenty of live fiddle & banjo music.

No experience needed! All the dances will be taught and called by Nancy Mamlin, who's traveling up from North Carolina to call for us. The Wabash Cannibals will be joining her with some sweet old-time string band music: Ron Cole on fiddle, Bill Schmidt on fiddle & banjo, John Schwab on guitar, and Kevin Enoch on bass.

No partner or costume required - just bring $5 to help us pay the band and the hall. Optional: a drink or snack to share, potluck-style, and a water bottle.

Date: Saturday, June 9

Time: 8:30 to 11:30 pm

Admission: $5

Address: St. Stephens Church, 1525 Newton St. NW, Washington, DC

Metro: Columbia Heights

RSVP: on Facebook!

Looking forward to dancing with you soon,

~The DC Square Dance Collective

We went to the one in March and it was really really fun. A very diverse crowd across all spectrums. You'll get hot... dress appropriately. And definitely bring yourself something to drink.
