Hello everyone, just a quick reminder about a few things. First, Fleur de Lis Fling is THIS weekend, so we will NOT be having our normal third Saturday dance. Instead, we’ll be having a special extend the weekend dance on Monday that’s open to everyone. Our caller will be Gaye Fifer, the band will be Celador, the dance will be from 8:00 PM to 10:30 PM, and the prices will be $5 for under 30s and $8 for over 30s. Ms. Fifer was our caller for last year’s Fling and Celador were our band for one of our first Friday dances back in the Spring. Both are excellent and definitely should not be missed. Also, while the Fling is sold out, there’s always a chance that someone will have to make a last minute ticket sale due to intervening circumstances, and as such anyone who doesn’t have a ticket should keep an eye on our Facebook event page just in case: https://www.facebook.com/events/677338229024368/ On a final note, there is going to be a party at Doug and Angela’s house on Sunday after the final Contra. Everyone’s invited, even if you didn’t make it to the Fling, and Deborah Denenfeld will be leading Irish Set Dancing for all who will while there. It’s great fun, and if you’re looking to experiment with dance forms other than Contra it’s a fantastic place to start. I think that’s everything of note, so I’ll sign off. See you all at Fleur de Lis Fling and/or the Monday dance!
The Louisville Country Dancers host weekly contra dances (including other country dancing) every Monday night at The Church of the Advent on 901 Baxter Avenue, Louisville, Kentucky. Free Lessons begin at 7:30 and we dance from 8-10:30. No partner or experience is required. Enjoy live music and a friendly inclusive dance community that welcomes new dancers.
Additionally, you can join us for more dancing on the first Friday and third Saturday of each month! You’ll be glad you did.

Oh no! It’s happened again and Fleur de Lis Fling has sold out this year! We regret that we can’t offer more space but on Monday November, 17 we will Extend the Weekend for our Monday-night dance. It will feature the band Celador from the weekend and nationally renowned caller Gaye Fifer. You don’t need to register for this dance so if you missed the weekend, then come on Monday to get a taste of what it’s like. For questions, see the Fleur de Lis Fling website at www.loukyfleurfling.org or contact Norm Stewart.
The board of directors just had our monthly meeting. We are excited to announce that the September 1st Monday dance will feature Keltricity for our 40th Anniversary Dance. Even better is that admission will only be $2 as a throwback to the very first dance we ever had. Come join us and celebrate!
We’d also like to remind everyone that Mondays and Fridays we invite the community to bring snacks for the break. Saturday night snacks will be provided, but we regret to announce that the Saturday night potlucks will be suspended until further notice.
This year we’ll be having Crowfoot and Nils Fredland calling. Same time, same place. Click here to view the Fleur de Lis Fling 2014 Website and Registration Form!
In May we elected the new board of directors.
