Clemmons – The Stuff, caller Nick Boulet

Sunday early evening dances are transitioning to mostly 2nd Sundays beginning in August.  This is the first of those so go ahead and mark it on your calendar.  The lesson for new people is at 5:30 pm and dancing starts at 6 and you can dance as much as you ‘d like until pm.  We have a short break in the middle with a few waltzes you can try and to close out each evening we have a final waltz.

“The Stuff” is back to bring us more great dancing music. Great stuff! Gretchen Caverly’s fiddle playing will carry you away with her precise yet freely interpreted melodies. Nic Coker works the guitar, supporting the melody with his creative and fluid rhythm and bass lines. In other words – music that is great fun to dance to!

This night our own Nick Boulet calls dances for the new dancer as well as for the more experienced ones. His relaxed, fun way of calling is infectious making the evening very fun.
