What traditions make up your New Year's Eve celebrations? Muskeg Music sticks with what it knows. For nearly forty years it's been sponsoring a New Year's Eve contradance. Simple, easy, and fun - accessible to all - beginners and singles always welcome
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.
