Fall 2016 Contra Dance Schedule

[ Become a Member ]

Members save $2 per contra dance evening (with very few exceptions), support the SBCDS, and receive a handsome personalized membership button. Upon joining, members also receive two dance passes to give to two of their not-yet-dancing friends.

Membership is $30 per calendar year. To become a member, just fill out a membership form available at the dance and pay the $30 fee. Note there is no prorating. The earlier in the year you join the more you could save.

Member savings does not apply to student/teen rate or to English Country dances.
