Contra Dance

Contra dancing is a fun activity for ALL ages. It’s healthy for the body, mind, and spirit! The South Coast Folk Scontraociety holds dances on the FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH at Bay Area Senior Activity Center Dance Hall from October through May and also other special dates. Contra dancing is fun for the whole family – come alone or with friends; wear comfortable clothes and clean, soft-soled shoes. No experience or partner needed! The dance starts at 7:00 pm. Call Paul at 541-404-8267 for more information.

Bay Area Senior Activity Center is at 886 South Fourth St. (Fourth and Ingersoll) in Coos Bay.
