Come join us for ~new!~ Mini Summer Series at the Armory, beginning Sunday August 20th, at 191 Highland Ave, Somerville MA for an evening of dancing and music!

5:30-6:30 Family Dance and Open Band
6:30-9:30 Contra dance time!

Caller: Linda Leslie
Music: Eric McDonald and friends

During the family dance portion, we welcome you to join the OPEN BAND! A common tunelist will be posted below.

While we’re at the Armory, no potluck after family dance! The potlucks will resume back in the fall. Thanks 🙂

BIDA Family Dances are family-oriented dance afternoons in conjunction with our regularly scheduled dances. Bring your kids! Tell your neighbors and schools! Come without kids of your own, ready to be friendly 🙂 Did you know that BIDA stands for Boston Intergenerational Dance Advocates? Well, kids are the upcoming generation, and a vital part of our community.

Please feel free to join us at 7:00 for a beginner’s lesson if you’re fresh to contra dancing. Bring someone new to contra dancing to the workshop and we’ll give you both passes to get in free at a future dance!

Admission is our standard sliding scale of $5-12 for adults (and counts for the regular dance following, should you choose to stay) and $3 each for children.

See you there!
