September 9, Saturday, Contra Dance! Full Moon with William Watson calling

Event:  09-Sep-2017

Full Moon have used their 15‑plus years of playing together to hone a distinct sound focused on lifting dancers' feet and hearts. Full Moon is: Gordy Euler (fiddle, pennywhistle, & piano), Janet Goulston (concertina & banjo), Dave Hamlin (mandolin & fiddle), and Fran Slefer (piano, button accordion, & fiddle).

William Watson, now a resident of Portland, OR, danced his first contra in 1989 and began calling in Texas in 1992. Having called numerous contra events in cities coast-to-coast, William’s extensive experience and soothing voice project a calm confidence. His vigilant and thoughtful dance programming ensures a variety of figures, transitions, and sequences to entertain and support new dancers while offering the occasional challenge for the more advanced. His calling proficiency and sensitivities ensure everyone has a good time.

Dance held at Village School, 3411 Willamette Street (site formerly called the old Dunn School) in Eugene! $8-$10

Lesson at 7:00 pm. Dance begins at 7:30 pm.
