Sallal Grange's next Contra Dance is 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, at the Grange and Community Hall.

The evening starts with a meal of hearty vegetable soup and rustic bread, at 6:30 p.m.

Musicians will play waltzes before the dance, and dance leader, Tim Noonan, gives waltz lessons between 7 and 7:30 p.m.

Contra dancing and waltzing follows from 7:30 to 10 p.m.

Contra dancing is appropriate for all genders and ages and is for the whole family. Similar to square dancing, it's more accessible. Sometimes the dancers get the steps right, sometimes they get them wrong, but they are always laughing.

A suggested donation is $5 to $10.

Sallal Grange is located at 12912 - 432nd Ave SE, North Bend, 98045
