Saturday 5/30: ClusterFolk with Tavi Merrill calling

This will be our first summer contradance following the centennial tour extravaganza last month. It will be good to get back on the dance floor with all of you. We had a booth at the Tucson Folk Festival and met many new folks interested in learning to contradance. The Out of Kilters and The Privy Tippers played at the festival too and we used every opportunity to spread the word about our dances. Don’t want to keep a good thing all to ourselves do we? All together we gave out about 200 free passes for the next four summer dances. Oh yeah, and if you’re new to the dance and heard about at the folk festival you can get in free too!
