Dear Dance Friends, 

Due to a scheduling conflict, the May Des Moines Contra Dance is Fri, May 11.  The regular Ames Contra Dance is Sat, May 12.  Both dances are 7-10pm.

Both dances will have lively music by Melon Farmer and calling by Reid Miller.  The admission donation - $8 ($5 students) - helps pay for hall rental, musicians' travel, and other expenses.

Due to other scheduling conflicts there will be no June contra dances in Des Moines and Ames.  We'll resume dancing in September.   Enjoy summer.  

These are everyone's dances.  We need about 40 people at each dance to comfortably provide them.  Please tell and invite, and come and bring friends and family.  Snacks for sharing are welcome.  Comfy clothes and shoes, and a water bottle are recommended.  No experience is necessary and partners are provided.  There is free parking at both venues.  Click below for maps.
