News from the Community Meeting

News from the Community Meeting:  We’re moving?! We’re moving! At our June community meeting we discussed many important things such as what we’ve accomplished over the last year, volunteer roles, and mostly about our need to find a new venue and our research thus far.

We have been looking into moving dance venues for some time now to make the dance more accessible to people who do not have cars and to address parking issues.  After much research, and feedback from the community meeting we have decided to move our weekly Friday night dances to Winchester Thurston (555 Morewood Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213). We are very excited to be making this move this summer (more details coming soon about when). There’s a great dance floor (with room for our community to grow), a great connection with the school, accessibility by bus and location near the Universities, a parking lot, and lots more! Keep your ears open for more details coming soon. If you have any questions give us at call at (412) 945-0554 or email us at  info@pittsburghcontra.org.

The Pittsburgh Contra Dance Network is 100% volunteer run. Volunteers sit at the desk to welcome dancers, come early to set up, stay late to clean up, help with the sound, and much more. Would you like to become one of these volunteers? We will work with you, your skills, and your availability to determine how your skills can best support our community. Have new ideas? We’re always open and welcome new ideas- so please share with us!
