“Not for Beginners” Contra Dance

Next Saturday, the 29th, we will have a contra dance with much less teaching than usual. Due to less teaching, this special dance is not for beginners. Joseph Pimentel will be calling to Four for Nothing.

Austin's Fire Ant Frolic

October 26-28 with Wake Up Robin and Sarah Van­Nor­strand. Details at FireAntFrolic.org.

*A newcomers' orientation starts about 15 minutes before each regular contra dance.

Cups of many nations
The names on the cups in this photo, taken at the September 22nd dance by Lauren Singer, reflect the cultural diversity of Houston and our dances. Laurenski calls the photo “Cups of Many Nations”.
