Black Diamond Contra Dance, January 2015
Power House Band with Lindsey Dono calling
The caller Lindsey Dono brings us another night of fun to start of the New Year.
And the Power House Band will blow you away! You gotta be good to live up to a name like that, and these kids do it with style. Led by the powerful 14 year old fiddler Kate Powers, and backed up by her siblings and friends, this is an up-and-coming local band. Kate already plays in the first violin section in the Port Angeles symphony, and can fiddle up a storm. She plays a variety of dance music from Old Time to ragtime to a Venezuelan waltz that will amaze you. The Power House band has a big strong sound, and a huge appetite for new tunes and variations to keep the evening interesting.
A Massachusetts transplant, caller Lindsey Dono began dancing in high school and calling in college. With her calm teaching, careful programming, and sunny demeanor, she can coax even the most skittish beginner onto the dance floor. Lindsey also leads workshops for intermediate and advanced dancers that focus on safety, creativity, and community.
She called for us last January, and we are happy to welcome her back.
Remember,there is a workshop at 7:30. All other dance details are on the "About Our Dance" page on this website.
