“We are having a blast at our weekly Tuesday evening Contra Dance Sessions at the Belfast Dance Studio, and we have room for more dancers! Contact me to join us (and see below for more info.)
I’m also excited about a grant-funded project working with early childhood educators in seven Broadreach Family & Community Services programs in Belfast, Unity, Swanville, & Morrill.  Songs, fingerplays, dancing, and movement for children ages 2-5 – what could be more fun!
More details below on public contra dances I’m calling this month.  (And more!)
See you dancing,

Chrissy Fowler
