Fourth Saturday Contra Dance Masquerade Ball

Saturday October 22 is the 4th Saturday of October and as such has been proclaimed by the Spirits as an evening that Wareham Dances! (Insert thunder & lightning sound effect) The organizers of the Contra Dance have been moved by said Spirits to bring to Wareham the First Annual Contra Dance MASQUERADE BALL! (M'wah hah hah) It will be held in the usual place... the Boys & Girls Club in Onset, Wareham... where many excited souls still roam the hallways!

Celebrate the last quarter of the Diana's Moon by dancing with friends and family; fun, as it was always meant to be! Feel free to come in complete costume or just a masque. If restless spirits ran off with your favorite masque, there will be masques and materials to decorate them at the door for a suggested donation of just $2.00.

Doors open at 6:pm for mask making. There is informal instruction around 6:30 pm, the Contra Dancing starts at 7:00 pm and goes until 10:00 pm.

Suggested donation at the door is $8.00 for adults, $6.00 for students with ID and Seniors.

There are few better ways to get closer with your family than dancing together.

Apple cider and snacks will be available and of course, in the spirit of the season there will be candy corn! Feel free to bring and share a special dish.

Whether you haven't Contra Danced since 5th grade music class or if you have been to every bona fide Contra Dance hall from here to Boavista, we guarantee fun for the whole family!  (Yes, they do have Contra Dance in Boavista!) And remember, our Contra Dance music is always live!
