Tim Smith & Eileen Regan of Big Celtic Fun Band, Emily Abel calling

Tuesday, September 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Salem College Contra Collaborators kicks off the fall season appropriately with a Salem Alumna, Emily Abel,  calling the dances!  Emily fell in love with contra dancing while a student at Salem. After attending many dances and going to a few fabulous dance weekends she was drawn to the art of calling dances, that is, teaching each dance and calling out the moves as people walked patterns to the music. Since graduating she has traveled extensively, calling dances all up and down the east coast while enjoyed the fellowship of other callers, band members and all the many people who just love contra dancing.

Anyone can contra dance. No partner necessary, no experience necessary. New people join in all the time. We all work together and help one another out as we have fun and try new things. Live, high energy, authentic music is played. At this dance we have two amazing players from Big Celtic Fun Band, playing: Eileen Reagan and Tim Smith!
