Fiddle & Bow Country Dancers

Updated July 4, 2021

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.

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!
