Memorial Weekend Brattleboro Dawn Dance

26 May 2019 - 27 May 2019
8:00 pm - 7:00 am
Gibson-Aiken Center

May 26 at 8 PM – May 27 at 7 AM

A long weekend means one more night for dancing! Come contra dance at the Gibson-Aiken center in downtown Brattleboro from 8:00 pm until the sun comes up and the lights go out.

Ticket sales are open, and there are still spots for volunteers. Admission is $25-$30 sliding scale, $20-$30 students and seniors. For tickets, volunteer job descriptions (if you want to sign up, don’t buy a ticket online!), and other information, visit the website at www.dawndance.org

The Dawn Dance makes special efforts to offset the carbon costs of the callers and bands travel, and you can do that for your own travel too – by choosing the option to contribute when you purchase tickets online, making a donation at the dance, and carpooling to the dance.
