Reel Shady with Dean Snipes calling

If you missed going to Feet Retreat for any reason, you’ll be glad to at last get back on the dance floor this Tuesday, September 19 at the Clemmons Civic Club, the place of friendly dancers!  And if you enjoyed Feet Retreat but are now coming off the high, re-energize here at your local dance where new people need you to help them get started and where the dancing is always fun and often hilarious.

We’ll thrill to the sounds of the well known regional band, Reel Shady as they provide their own energetic interpretation of Scottish, Celtic and traditional tunes!  Reel Shady has been providing listeners with this finely detailed, tight sound at venues in the area’s venues for many years, adding fresh new interpretations at each dance!  They blend their many talents, experience and instruments in a way that makes dancing to the music easy and fun.

Also, to add to the evening’s fun, is a caller we all love, Dean Snipes, the original “mighty fine” caller who engages us with his humor and wit as he clearly teaches the lesson and calls the dances. Spontaneous hilarity breaks out at times as Dean corrals we  sometimes inattentive dancers as we socialize and talk. It is humorous when we accidentally mess up during the dance and Dean has to get us back in line. That’s why contra is some much fun – its something we can do and not have to worry about doing right, enjoying  the freedom to make mistakes, knowing that no one cares!
