South Sound New Year’s Eve Dance
This special dance usually features two bands and two callers, with a dessert potluck at the break. OCDC and Tacoma take turns hosting the New Year’s Eve Dance. Tacoma will be sponsoring in 2013, and OCDC will sponsor the dance in Olympia in 2014.
As part of the Cascade Promenade festival of dance events along the I-5 corridor over the second weekend in March, OCDC will sponsor Saturday afternoon contra dancing at the South Bay Grange.
