Belfast Flying Shoes announces a new feature of its ongoing Thursday Contras with caller Chrissy Fowler at the Belfast Dance Studio. Beginning Thursday, March 22, the weekly contras will feature live music.

The Thursday Contras have their roots in adult education classes; and have evolved in recent years to become a relaxed and fun opportunity to contra dance on a weekly basis. Each evening typically features a variety of dance formations for all experience levels, with content shaped through input from the dancers.

Thursday Contras meets weekly from 6 to 8:15 p.m. at the Belfast Dance Studio, 109 High St. Drop-ins are welcome. Fee is a $10-$12 sliding scale (pay in advance for reduced rates; teens are eligible for scholarship funding). For more information, email or call 338-0979.
