WWFAM Contra dances canceled Saturday and April 1

Walla Walla Friends of Acoustic Music has canceled two local traditional old-time contra dances.

“The Country Dance and Song Society nationally has just recommended that all participatory dance events be canceled at this point through the end of April,” according to a notice on the WWFAM website and in an email.

Thus the event Saturday at the Timberrib in Milton-Freewater and the first Wednesday dance on April 1 at Whitman College will not be held out of concern for the coronavirus.
