Join us for Contra, ECD, and more at Atlanta's Friday DistDance!
When: Friday Sept 11; doors open 7:00pm EDT (0:00 BST; 4:00pm PDT); live music and dance 7:30-8:45
Caller: Seth Tepfer
Band: Eloise & Company
Location: http://contradance.link/ATLDistDance (this is a link to the Zoom meeting. It is updated for each dance)
Enjoy dancing and watching your friends dance, chat and socialize, get some exercise, and enjoy good music. The program of contra and ECD (and a free waltz or two) is selected by the caller to be easy to do and satisfying with one or two people.
Eloise & Co. features the combined creative force of two of the country’s most sought-after dance musicians, Becky Tracy and Rachel Bell. These two dynamos crank out dance and concert music with unbridled energy and soaring beauty. Their depth and versatility is evident not only in their dynamic playing but also in their rich and unique repertoire, ranging from exciting original compositions to rock-solid traditional tunes. Eloise & Co. was born out of Becky and Rachel’s transcendent melodic connection, their shared love for powerful rhythmic momentum, and their joy in making music together. The blissful vibe is contagious, drawing everyone in the room into a sublime and memorable experience.
Doors open at 7:00 Eastern for a Zoom lesson for those who would like it and social time for those who’ve done it before. Be sure to clear out some dance space in your house, charge your device, and come on down (virtually, of course) to enjoy this dance and community event. Dancing starts at 7:30 with the last waltz at about 8:45, and the hall will remain open for another 15 minutes for chitchat and farewells. Note: Atlanta DistDance uses gender-free calling.
Please share with your friends near and far! Hope to see you Friday!
