Contra Dance: Sarah VanNorstrand calling to Maivish

Dances are done in lines of couples. All ages -from 5 to 105. Each couple follows the calls, dancing with another couple. After you and your partner have done the dance figures with one couple you do them with the next couple in line. By the end of the dance you have danced with everyone in your set. There are about 9 or 10 dances in an evening. The convention is to ask a different partner for each dance and to ask people you don't know to dance. You get to hear lively music, enjoy some exercise, meet your neighbors, and build our community

This is a man who can go full-on Chicago gutbucket with You Don’t Have to Go” (a Bromberg original), then slay with the jazz inflections of Ray Charles’ Fool for Yourendered here intimately solo.
Although Bromberg points out he’s not the same guitarist he was before his two decades away from performing and recording. “I play differently, he says. I can’t play as fast, but playing slower gives me more time to think about what I’m doing. He’s always able to plug into the emotion of a song,
