Contra dancers to focus on adding flourishes to their moves
Workshop to show how to perfect style with tips and tricks in Sautee Nacoochee
Contra dancers fill the floor of the Sautee Nacoochee Community Association gym during a monthly contra dance. Intermediate dancers may participate in a workshop Aug. 9 to learn new swings and swirls as well as receive tips on ways to fine-tune their dancing. The workshop begins at 1:30 p.m. with a dance following from 3-6 p.m. at 283 Ga. 255 N in Sautee Nacoochee.
Two “possums” from the Virginia family band, Toss the Possum, are headed to Sautee to play a special Sunday afternoon contra dance Aug. 9, as part of a three-dance weekend starting Aug. 7 in Atlanta. The Sunday event kicks off at 1:30 p.m. at the historic gym of the Sautee Nacoochee Center with a free “Contra with Style” workshop for intermediate-experience dancers. Although, anyone interested in watching are welcome.
