Hey I've been coming to Contra for a few months now and I'd really like to go to the Brattleboro Dawn Dance. I live here in New York, in Brooklyn, but I'm willing to meet up at another location if needed. Is there any possibility I could hitch a ride with someone to and/or from the dance? Glad to help pay for gas/car rental. Thanks! Please feel free to call me at 347-752-7044.

I'm CD*NY's liaison to the Chinatown YMCA, and I've learned that because of intense financial pressure the Y may soon have to increase our rent beyond what we can afford. We're okay until the end of this season (January 26) but it's time to start looking again for a great place to have our contra dances. Please help by giving us information about halls you are aware of. Reminders of halls you suggested before are welcome - each search is different so an old idea may look good in new light.…Continue
Effective immediately, CD*NY will no longer serve water at our dances. By implementing this policy we will be saving a large quantity of plastic trash from entering the waste stream.
We encourage dancers to bring their own water bottles and to fill them at the fountains directly outside the dance hall. There are also vending machines on the same floor and a Whole Foods next door should you want to purchase a beverage before or during the dance.

I have an unassembled mountain dulcimer kit that is waiting for a forever home with someone who would be so excited to put it together and play it!
