Tue, Jan 21, 2020 7:45 PM – Tue, Jan 21, 2020 10:00 PM Troika plays and Open Calling Contra!

Where: Riolo Dance

Riolo Dance 502 N Capitol Ave, 2nd Floor Indianapolis, Indiana 46204

This week at Indy Contra we will have Troika playing with open calling!

From a simple folk song to a snappy gypsy jazz tune to a wandering improvisational reverie, Troika brings the rich and diverse landscape of International folk music to life for American audiences. Although many instruments are featured–the heart of Troika’s sound is the dynamic interplay between Sarah Skreko’s fiddle and Dianna Davis’ clarinet, driven forward by the punchy rhythms of Mario Joven’s guitar and Adam Riviere’s percussion. Troika also celebrates the Balkan dance tradition; the wild rhythms of their dance tunes are unlike anything else this side of the Carpathians!

Calling will be open calling this week. Every third Tuesday we will have open calling for all of our callers, new and experienced. We want to continuously grow our calling scene, so we can brag about having an amazing line up of callers.

Directions to the dance hall can be found here: https://www.indycontra.org/location/directionstoriolo/

Hope to see you there!

Contra dancing is a social dance. Contra is pure fun and not for competition or performance. It requires no experience and focuses on community, making friends and dancing to a variety of music. You don’t need to bring a partner – part of the tradition is switching partners each time. A caller teaches each dance, so no lessons are needed; just show up and have fun!
