This past weekend, a lucky seven of us drove up North to Delafield for our first dance of the Spring Semester. The pre-dance pot luck was delicious and gave us great fuel for four hours of dancing! A Rare Privilege, formerly known as The Ladies of the Lake provided the tunes. We’re excited that they’ll be playing at our next dance here in Beloit on February 21st.  1530401_10153079655800350_4292187086440212030_n 10409177_10153079620690350_2699212279945852945_n 10675554_10153079646320350_1128883026209018679_n 10897747_10153079654430350_8757586857291475663_n 10956216_10153079619810350_2823355438506969805_n 10959564_10153079653025350_4776320985217048301_n 10959658_10153079625785350_6274691569705405848_n 10959661_10153079646610350_8239825590233315439_n 10959733_10153079625390350_5229774557198326551_n 10968345_10153079657045350_7454789699990299745_n 10988527_10153079631390350_8889845711332281593_n contra

Rounding out the School Year with the Turtle Stomp

This year was definitely a great one! We had indoor dances, outdoor dances, and a trip to Folklore Village in the fall. Last week, we had the Second Annual Beloit College Turtle Stomp on Chapid Quad. The Briar Pickers with Trent Cuthbert came up from Madison to play tunes and our caller Dot Kent kept everyone moving and grooving. Prior to the event, Taste of Beloit, an RA project, brought in samples from different local restaurants to fuel Beloiters up for dancing. During a dancing break, we announced the limited edition of Beloit Contra Club t-shirts (organic cotton–oh my) which cause a bit of a stampede. If you were fast enough, they are beautiful and designed by Grace and you should wear them everywhere. If you didn’t get one, there are more to come next year!
