A Contra Dance will be held Jan. 8 in Durango.
January 8 is the second Saturday of the month —a change from the usual schedule.
The dance will be held at Park Elementary School, 510 E. 6th Ave.
Beginner dance instruction is at 7 p.m.
The Contra Dance with new local band including Sue Colter, and caller Wendy Graham from Durango takes place 7:30-10:15.
All dances are taught and called. No partner is necessary, and dancers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Admission is $10. First-timers get a pass to come back for free.
You can also purchase a 2011 season pass — get into all nine dances for just $75 (save $15).
These smoke-and alcohol-free dances are a project of the Durango Arts Center.
