SMTMD Valentines Day
Contra Dance
Saturday, February 14th.

Christ's Church Hall
Chaptico, MD.

What better way to celebrate this special day than to bring your Special Valentine to our Valentines Day Contra Dance.


Contra dancing is a traditional American style of social dance and is a huge amount of fun (and exercise)! If you’ve ever danced a Virginia Reel, you have a good idea how much fun it can be. If you haven’t, it’s about time you tried it! Beginners are encouraged to get some instruction in the various dances (starting at 7 pm).


SMOBCaller: Greg Frock

Live Music by
Southern Maryland Open Band



Dancing lessons start at 7 p.m. with the band striking up at 7:30. Admission is $10 for non SMTMD members, $8 for members (band members are free). There will be an ice cream social following the dance.
