MUSICIANS We want to build our numbers of contra dance players. If you are an accomplished musican and know the nuances and repetoire of contradance music, please contact Pat at email@example.com or 954-431-0690. Our goal is to get enough players to create a South Florida contra-orchestra for a December mega-band dance, and to have back-up players to fill in for seasonal vacancies in our local dances. The dance must go on!
