Contra dancing is a fun, inter-generational activity. It’s good for the body, mind, and spirit! The South Coast Folk Society holds a dance on the second Saturday of each month from September through May at the Greenacres Grange. The dance 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. The Greenacres Grange is located off Hwy 42 between Coos Bay and Coquille near milepost 3. The grange address is 93393 Greenacres Lane Coos Bay, OR 97420
