What better way to celebrate the start of a fresh year than by contradancing to live music, under the guidance of iconic New England caller Tony Parkes? Come to Tracy Hall in Norwich on Sunday, December 31. Dress in your favorite celebratory dance clothes to step and swirl to live music by talented local band "Cuckoo's Nest". Tony Parkes will coach and call. Everyone is welcome – no partner or experience necessary. Regular dance starts at 8 - but newcomers may arrive at 7:45 for a walk-through. Anticipate a special celebration at midnight! Please bring clean, soft-soled shoes for dancing, to preserve the well-finished floor. Admission $10, students $6; under 16 free! Event is sponsored by Muskeg Music; more info at uvdm.org. Pot-luck snacks at the break – please bring finger food to share!
