Contra Dancing at the Colleges

img_5135Attending the contra dance at the Edmunds Ballroom at Pomona College last Friday helped me get closer to doing all 47 things on my 47 Things To Do in Claremont list. If you arrive at 8:00 p.m. don’t expect to start dancing right away. It took about 30 minutes before there were enough people to execute a proper contra dance.

Without going into explanations of this style of folk dancing (this youtube video can get you started), here are some shots of the night’s events.

The live band, Atlantic Crossing, provided the music.


A nice table of snacks rounded out the evening.
