Contra Dance at Sixes Grange on July 28

SIXES — The South Coast Folk Society will have host another free Contra Dance at 7 p.m., Saturday, July 28, at the Sixes Grange, 44556 Highway road one zero one, Sixes, in Curry County.

Contra dancing is a carefree form of social dancing that is anything but simple to learn and good time for all ages. Singles, couples and families will appreciate contra dancing and new dancers are constantly welcome.

Live music will be given by the notable Open Band, a mainstream band made up of performers from Coos and Curry counties. They play a vivacious blend of Celtic, old timey and current day contra tunes.

These musicians, under the initiative of Sharon Rogers, have furnished Coos and Curry counties with exuberant and dynamic contra dance music for a long time.

Karen Olsen from North Bend, a gifted guest with numerous long periods of experience, will instruct and after that call every one of the dances.

Side of the Tide Morris Dancers will give amusement amid the break.

All are welcome to this free, public occasion, which is alcohol and aroma free. Refreshments are accessible. Entryways open at 6:45 p.m.

This could be the third in a progression of four Contra dances in Curry County this season, all at the Sixes Grange. The next and last move is on Oct. 20.

More than 70 people of any age have had an out-dated great time at past dance, assembling as a network to appreciate dance, unrecorded music and each other’s organization.

The dances are subsidized by The Curry County Cultural Coalition and The Oregon Cultural Trust. For more data call 541-332-9295 or 541-348-2174 or visit
