Festive Holiday Potluck Dinner & Dance

After the Christmas Concert tomorrow (Saturday, Dec. 12th), you're invited to continue the festive holiday spirit with a Holiday Dinner & Dance.

Get out your Glad Rags and Dance Shoes: it's time to celebrate!

If you can walk, you can Contra Dance! All ages, beginners and experienced dancers, singles, couples, and families welcome! No partner or experience needed.

Dinner will begin promptly at 6 p.m. 

Please bring a dish to pass, and a smile. Table service and water will be provided. So that we have a variety of foods, we'd appreciate it if you would be so kind as to let us know what you're bringing for the potluck. You can post on our Facebook page (Midland Traditional Dancers), or send a message to midlandtraditionaldancers [@] (Remove the spaces and brackets.)

Admission is the same as a regular dance, $7. No charge for dancers who have purchased a season pass.

Formal attire will be admired, but is not required.

Warm-up/New Dancer Lesson 7 p.m.; Dancing 7:30 p.m.
Old-time traditional music is provided by local musicians.

Held in the Barstow-Shipps Activity Room at the Midland Community Center at 2205 S. Jefferson Ave, Midland.

The next Dance on January 9 will have a Sparkle Theme.
