2014 Line UP!
The fantastic Mean Lids and the percussive brilliance of Contraforce will drive the beat of Summer Soirée 2014. Our callers are Diane Silver and Hank Morris.
Reserve your spot for the weekend by becoming a Sponsor! Information Sponsorship for 2014!
Facebook is the fastest way to communicate with contra dancers, so announcements are made there first, and on the website immediately thereafter. Friends of Summer Soirée
Gender Balance? Yes. Sort of. We will try to balance this year again, but may be slightly less "perfect" about it, which means that there may be more of one gender than the other. There is so much controversy around this issue that I am loathe to continue the tradition, but the weekend's theme will again be Gender Free. Above all, we will play with gender freedom!
We will have Sunderland Hall dorms this year, so many of our dancers will stay in air conditioned comfort.
Ticket Prices for Summer Soirée 2014:
We are still working on the budget - the college continues to raise prices every year; we keep this as affordable as we can. Know that it is a labor of love on the part of all organizers.
