Brian Lindsay & David Bartley
A Massachusetts transplant, 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.
When not involved with contra, Lindsey conducts immunology research, practices lindy hop, and crews on a racing yacht.
Brian Lindsay comes has been immersed in music most his life and comes from one our favorite bands: Countercurrents, he will be joined by David Bartley to sling so crazy fun tunes sure to keep your feet flying.
Dave Bartley plays guitar, mandolin, cittern, and several other stringed instruments. He has played many styles of music over the years and continues to range over several genres. He has performed throughout the US and Canada, and in England, Australia, France and Greece. It is difficult to count the number of bands in which he plays.
Dave has composed over 300 dance tunes. A waltz he wrote and KGB recorded, The Clock Stopped, is used to teach cross-step waltz in much of the US and other parts of the world. A reel he wrote, Vladi on the Trans-Siberian, seems to be popping up at dances and jam sessions all over the place.
There is a workshop at 7:30pm. The dance begins at 8:00. All other dance details are on the "About Our Dance" page on this website.
