Contrary to Popular Opinion: A Blog
"I'm so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers." L. M. Montgomery really said it right and the Shenandoah Valley is particularly blessed with fall foliage and crisp (read: perfect dancing) weather.
I don't have much to tell you this month. We pretty much wrapped up most of our special events last Saturday but if you insist on keeping up with the...contrarians (?) here are a couple updates!
Our second Dayton Days Contra Showcase was very successful. Many festival attendees stopped by to listen to the music and watch the dancing. Some brave souls even jumped in and tried it! We hope to see some of them at future dances. Thank you to Lorie Lichtenwalner, Mike Williams, Jim Harrington, and Joe Showalter for providing toe-tapping, crowd-gathering tunes.
Haven't jumped on the t-shirt train yet? Well, now is your chance. T-shirts are now $10. Get your t-shirt at any SVCD dance.
Don't you...forget about me. And by me, I mean the survey! If you haven't already, please take a couple minutes to give us some feedback about your thoughts and experiences with our two local dances. The link to the survey can be found here and on the Shenandoah Valley Contra Dance and Monday Night Facebook groups. You only need to complete the survey once. Your response is invaluable! Thank you for your help with this.
