This Saturday June 18, 2022 at The Dancing Fish

Trust Jonathan to tear you apart from your partner — only at the last moment to be reunited again. Let him guide you to the rhythms of  “Wind That Shakes the Barley” through figures that you never dared to imagine! Resonate with the rhythmic space where we all get to socialize in a very old-fashioned American way — by contra dancing!
