The cold didn’t stop our most dedicated contra fans from coming out for the first dance of the Spring semester this past Friday. Caller Steve Pike and the Ladies of the Lake joined Beloit Contra Dance Club for a Valentine’s Day Dance.
The Hendrick’s Center was filled with pinks and reds on skirts as well as streamers gracing the walls, and two red roses decorated the band’s keyboard. We began with our standard half hour lesson followed by two and a half hours of dancing. Frequent water breaks kept us on our toes. An all-around favorite was the spiral dance.
Thanks everyone for coming out. Look out for updates on our March 22nd dance which will feature Beloit College’s own North Atlantic Music Ensemble!
