Honesdale, Wayne County-Two events are set for The Cooperage in Honesdale, Wayne County.   A Contra Dance on November 23 and  Open Mic Night will held on November 27..

Put on your dancing shoes and come out and dance! On Saturday, November 23rd there is a Contra Dance from 7:30 to 10:00pm at The Cooperage, 1030 Main Street in Honesdale. Contra dancing is fun for the whole family. It’s energetic and a great way to build friendships and create community.

“Contra dancing is easy to do, great exercise and a heck of a lot more fun than sitting home watching TV!, says Laurie Brongo, the caller for the dances at The Cooperage. “The live music is exciting and upbeat. I guarantee you'll be tapping your feet and itching to join in!” ‘Contra Dance’ a form of traditional American set dancing with long lines of couples facing each other. Over the course of a dance each couple moves up and down the hall, interacting with the other couples in their line. The steps themselves, which are simple and easy to learn, are similar to those used in traditional square dances. A caller, first teaches the figures to be done in each dance, and then 'calls' the dance as the music is played by live musicians.

So bring the family down for this fun affair! This dance will feature music by The Ragtag Rutabagas with Caller Laurie B. Come with or without a partner. Beginners are always welcome! Suggested donation: $10, kids under 15, free.
