Indianapolis contra dancers have, weather permitting, a great dance opportunity on January 7 & 8, 2011. Urbana, Illinois has their annual “Jan Jam,” with contras, a impressive pot luck (seriously! this table stays loaded with food until late, late at night), and many hours of couples’ dancing, jamming (bring your instruments!), and even supervised fun for children! No dancing Sunday, but there’s a pot luck brunch. Carol Ormand & David Ernst are calling. Music’s by Mean Lids, Big Bluestem, and the Money Creek Boys. Plus there are about a dozen workshops by other folks, including our own Dianna Davis playing for a Zwiefacher session.
Urbana is just 2 hours west of Indianapolis, and on Central time. Schedule, travel info, etc. is at http://www.urbana-contra.org/jan_jam.html
