Contradance set for today
The Otsego Dance Society will hold its December contradance today at the Presbyterian Church in Cooperstown. Casey Mullaney will call and the band will be Ms. Marty & SGB.
Contradancing is a traditional New England dance form that is social and easy to learn, according to a media release. Singles, couples and families of all ages are welcome. No experience is needed, since all dances are taught and walked through.
Dancing begins at 8 and continues until 11 p.m., with a short break for refreshments.
There is a suggested donation of $8 for adults, $4 for students and teenagers and free for children 12 and younger. The Presbyterian Church is on the corner of Pioneer and Church streets.
