Joe McCarthy, one of the regulars at the contra dances at the Unitarian Church at Elmwood Avenue and West Ferry Street, is picking up the tab tonight, in honor of his late wife, Mary, for those who want to participate.
"This would be a great chance for people to check out the dance group free," said member Carolyn Kerr.
A contra dance lesson starts at 7:30 p.m. and dancing starts at 8 p.m.
Dress is casual, no partner is required and all ages are welcome. There also are free snacks tonight, Kerr said.
Future dance nights take place at the same place and times on May 31 and June 7 and 19. The cost is $9, or $6 for students with ID. Children under 12 are free.
Kerr tells me this community dance group is a nice way to improve your health and dance away stress.
