The Charlotte Contra Dancers
Contra Dancing in Charlotte, N.C. since 1973
A few updates as of 10-27-21
1: December Dance: Though we remain optimistic for 2022, we do not think that a December 2021 dance is feasible. We will continue to discuss when our first dance will be for 2022.
2. December Picnic: We may not be getting together to dance in December but we are planning another BYO picnic. We'll meet at Carol’s Rock Hill farm, Saturday, December 4th. This will give us a chance to socialize with each other even if we’re not dancing. Stay tuned for further details and an opportunity to RSVP to the picnic!
3. Dancefloor: We have kept our old dancefloor in a climate-controlled storage unit since March 2020 after Caldwell Presbyterian Church demolished Belk Hall. The plan was to keep the dancefloor in storage temporarily while we moved into our permanent dance location. Then, of course, COVID happened and we have been paying for the storage for over a year and a half now, which is not cheap.
For this reason, and others, we have made the hard decision to get rid of the dancefloor. We wanted to let the community know in case anyone wanted some or all of the dancefloor panels. If so, please reach out to the board (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP, as we will otherwise get rid of all the dancefloor panels by November 20, 2021.
4. Gypsy Meltdown 2022: The idea of a scaled down Gypsy Meltdown next year is being discussed. Please reach out to the board by email (email@example.com) if you would like to help as part of the Gypsy Meltdown planning board.
We look forward to seeing you at the December picnic! Stay tuned for more info.
Please stay safe!
