Are you ready to dance again?
Many people are looking forward to a post-Covid world, a world in which contra dancing can be a regular thing again. The F&B board has been discussing the possibilities but because the Delta variant is spreading rapidly, our local venues are all indoors with none or little outside air ventilation, and in contra dancing we dance face to face with everyone in the room, there are concerns about opening up too early.
Postponing local dances for awhile yet, we have come to a tentative plan to hold a One Day Feet Retreat Special Event on the weekend of September 24-26 at Camp Millstone since that is an outdoor venue that many know well and enjoy. We plan on having some of the best bands and callers that you normally expect at Feet Retreat.
Whether or not we hold this will depend on having enough help, availability of bands and callers as well as CDC and State Health guidelines at the time.
Please plan on being fully vaccinated by then so that you may attend! By being vaccinated you will also help prevent this disease from causing more damage and heartache and we can confidently get back to normal.
Please bring clean, soft soled, non-marring, shoes without spiked heels (heels should be 3/4″ width minimum) to preserve the fine floors we’re privileged to dance on and to make dancing more comfortable, safe and fun for you.
Admission at regular dances: CASH or CHECK at the door.
Regular Admission: $10 (except Clemmons on Tuesdays – $9)
Student Admission: (23 and under full time) – $6
Salem College students and faculty $3

Fundraising update July 4, 2021:
Thanks to ongoing donations we have the financial means to begin holding dances as the Covid situation improves. You are helping to meet our many expenses and to reach out and expose more people to the contra dance and music tradition.
Thanks to those on the Board who continually volunteer their time to keep the dances going. Also, thanks to all who volunteer to help in various ways at each dance. It takes a community for it all to happen, thank you!
If you would like to have contra dancing or circle dances at your event, please contact one of us! Those type of events reach out to the community at large and introduce new people to this wonderful activity, helping to grow our dance.
