ASTORIA — The second contra dance of the fall season begins at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at the Astoria Arts and Movement Center. Admission is $5-$10.

Featuring live music from the Clatsop County Stringband, Caller Dave Ambrose will teach a beginner’s lesson at 7 p.m. and have everyone ready to dance to music by 7:30 p.m.

Everyone is encouraged to dance with as many people as they are comfortable with, no partner required.

This is a dance for all ages and grown-ups are encouraged to bring their children along. Children under 12 years are admitted free. It’s a great way for the whole family to have a fun evening.

The dances will be held the first Friday of every month.
