A smoke-free and alcohol-free evening (...so much for that tradition).     

Light physical activity, and a chance to meet and mingle with your friends and neighbors     

Potluck finger food snacks at the break, and singing at midnight!

Monday, December 31st - 8:00 pm - Contradance at Tracy Hall, Norwich, VT        (200 Main Street, Norwich - we enter through the back doors by the White Church)     

Walk-through for new dancers at 7:45 - all dances are first taught, then called while the music plays. Music provided by Calliope - a New England All-Stars "big band" - with twin fiddles, accordion, clarinet, keyboard, trombone, and yes - coconuts! Calling by Nils Fredland.

Admission is $15, $10 for students and under 16 are FREE!

Dancers should dress comfortably in layers for changing activity levels and bring: a separate pair of clean shoes for the dance floor (smooth soles, and low or *no* heels work best), a water bottle, potluck snacks for the break (not mandatory), a smile, and a friend. More dance info here:  http://uvdm.org  and on Facebook under "Norwich Community Dances".
