Outermost Contra Dance is proud to welcome
Outermost Contra Dance welcomes New England caller Erica Weiss for the first time. A patient and enthusiastic instructor, Erica is known for helping experienced learners, as well as novices, broaden their knowledge base, further their ability, and continue to find joy in making music. Also a dance caller and instructor, she has brought the joy of dance, including square dance, contra, international, Cajun, and Zydeco, to participants of all levels and ages as well. Erica has taught and performed at camps and festivals including Pinewoods Folk Music Week, Stephen Foster Old-Time Music Weekend, Chesapeake Dance, Music Camps North, Ashokan Fiddle & Dance New Years’, The Dance Flurry, Lincoln Center NYC, Black Pot Festival Louisiana, and many others.
Erica will be calling to the music of local favorite dance fiddler, Amy Larkin, and renowned pianist Jacqueline Schwab.
Contra dancing is the older cousin to the square dance. No fancy footwork needed – if you can walk, you can dance! All the dances are taught and called. If you’re new to contra dance, be sure to get in on the early dances for the basic moves. And don’t miss out on our welcoming and delicious potluck at 6.
Outermost Contra is one of many contradances on the Cape, and was organized in December of 2014. The contra dance is family friendly and welcomes dancers of all levels.
Community potluck at 6:00
Dance begins at 7:00
Outermost Contra hosts traditional New England contradances on the Outer Cape with live music every third Friday of each month.
