Contra Party at Burning Man HQ - 2019.05.23

posted May 24, 2019, 8:04 AM by Andy Shore
I called a contra dance at the headquarters of Burning Man (Black Rock City, LLC) in SF, with music by the wiNgNuts (Chris Knepper, Will Wheeler, Isele Harper) ! This was one of their regular Thursday "happy hour" socials, and the "contraburners" Burning Man Contra Dance Camp put this together. The HQ space was amazing, with lots of photographs, art, and scale models from past Burning Man Festivals. We had a really fun time, and I hope this was good publicity for contra dancing in general and the camp. Here's what I called:
"Matthew Just in Time" by David Kaynor
"To Turn a Phrase" by Bob Isaacs
"Greetings" by Tori Barone
"Rock Creek Reel" by David Harris
"Back of the Envelope" by Dugan Murphy
"Cascades" by Orace Johnson
