Welcome to Blue Ridge Country Dancers contra dance page with information and scheduling for our Floyd contra dances. It's not necessary to bring a partner, but we do insist on clean, soft-soled shoes. All dances are taught; beginners are welcome. The caller will conduct a beginner's workshop before the dance.
Blue Ridge Country Dancers sponsor the second Saturday contra dance in Floyd at the Floyd Center for the Arts, 220 Parkway Lane South, Floyd, Va - 1/2 mile south of the stoplight in Floyd on Rt 8 South. This is the big, barn building on the right just past the car dealership. We will be dancing on the oak dance floor in the community room on the second floor.
Dance information: 540 489-1826.
Due to uncertainty regarding COVID-19, contra dancing in Floyd is still uncertain.
We miss you all. We miss dancing. We had hoped we would be dancing this upcoming season. Unfortunately, the delta variant of the virus has caused us to stay on a temporary break. When we DO dance again, we will be requiring full vaccines for all: dancers, callers, band members and support staff. You should be prepared to show your vaccination card.
September - no dance
October - May: check back for new updates.
Treat yourself to an evening of easy, relaxed fun with lots of smiles and live music. All dance figures are taught by the caller, and there is a free lesson at 6:35 pm before the dance which runs from 7:00 - 10:00 pm. Beginners and experienced dancers, all ages, welcome. Come alone or with a partner; dress is casual and soft-soled shoes that glide work best. Admission is $8.00; $6.50 with student ID; listener admission - $5.00. Come to dance or come to listen--no partner needed.
