Contact RSU20 Adult Ed directly re. registering:
RSU20 Adult Ed office:  6B Lions Way • Belfast, ME 04915 • (207)338-3197 • Fax: (207)338-2960  -- RSU20 Adult Ed website has info on other courses. -- This is where you'll find the listing for Contra Dancing, which is a new add-on course.  (It's not listed in the regular course listings.)

Minimum of 20 registrants needed in order to run the class.  Participants can come with or without a partner.

Content will be geared toward (a) introducing neophytes to the basics of contra dancing in a quieter environment than our local 1st Friday dance, (b) directly teaching figures/pointers to interested non-neophyte dancers, again, in a quieter environment than the 1st Friday Belfast dance, and (c) providing participants with a fun social and physical activity to help combat cabin fever.

Thanks all for being interested, and for letting others know about it.  Let me know directly if you have other questions
