Contra dancing with Roaring Jelly!
Roaring Jelly is a community contra dance band that has been playing in the Boston area since 1970. We play for a monthly dance in Lexington on the Green at the First Parish Church, and appear occasionally at other dances in the area. If you want to know what contra dancing is, click here.

Our monthly dances run from 8-11 PM every third Friday from September through June, except as noted in our flyer (and here). There is a 15 minute introduction to Contra Dancing at 7:45pm before our 3rd Friday Dances.

The address for our monthly dance is 7 Harrington Road, Lexington, MA 02420. It's at the (south-)west corner of the Green. There's a parking lot in back, via the driveway on the left (south) side of the church. The rear door, by the parking lot, is the one to use, and is usually open by 7:30. Take the stairs or the elevator to the 2nd floor. To get there by bus, take bus lines #76 or #62, from Alewife. (Last bus back to Alewife is around 10:15pm; check schedules, or ask for a ride at the Dance.)

For more information, please call Deborah Gerstein at 781-259-0753, or email Michael at: roaringjelly@comcast.net.
