Hey MUSICIANS We want to build our numbers of contra dance players. If you are an accomplished musican and familiar with contradance music, please contact Pat at firstname.lastname@example.org or 954-431-0690. We have sheet music and can help you learn the style. Our goal is to get enough players to have back-up players to fill in for seasonal vacancies in our local dances. Our grand piano needs attention too! The dance must go on!
