No partners needed at all. :) Neither Anja nor I are bringing anyone.
You may be asked to dance by men there.

What if you don't have a male partner to bring?

Hi Everyone,

Come join me and 4A-HEALTHY-BMI at a beginner-friendly contra dancing event happening Saturday evening, January 11, 2014. There will be fun music and lessons!

Here are details about the event from www.sandiegocontra.org

Date: Saturday, January 11, 2014
Time: 7:30p - 8:00p beginners lesson, 8:00p-11:00p contra dance
Location: Trinity United Methodist Church, 3030 Thorn Street, San Diego, CA (near NE corner of Balboa Park)
Price: $8 adults, $4 teens or students with ID

This evening will be a special kind of contra dance, a "techno" contra, playing electro-remixes of indie pop songs combined with traditional contra dance moves. †

We have information about public transportation if you need that.

For those who haven't done contra before, it's sort of like square dancing crossed with swing. There is usually live music. Itís super beginner-friendly and if you can walk, you can pretty much contra dance. Here's a video with people explaining why they like contra dancing and showing them dancing:

I havenít ever done it before, either, so you wonít be alone as a newbie. 4A-HEALTHY-BMI only started contra dancing in March. Here is a blog post she wrote about contra dancing with some Spark Friends in November: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_pu

Some of the things 4A-HEALTHY-BMI says she loves about contra is that it has helped her get used to physical contact with others, it's pulled her out into a more social scenario, and she's getting used to how my "new" body feels and moves. Plus it gives her a chance to channel her inner femme, with all of those twirly and sparkly skirts she finds in thrift shops. Most of the time she's a tomboy, so this is a fun change.

So, who's up for this? †Anyone else want to come out and start the New Year burning calories to lively music and making new friends?
