Contra Dances

 

All Living Tradition community center events have been cancelled until further notice.

To promote public health and safety in light of COVID-19, the City of Anaheim has temporarily closed the Downtown Anaheim Community Center and other community centers.

We are completely supportive of the City's action, which we believe will help protect the health of the community.  Therefore, we have cancelled our community center concerts, jams, and dances until further notice.

We are planning online events during this time when we cannot offer indoor concerts, jams, or dances. 

Visit our Online Events page for information about virtual dances, jams, and concerts.

Stay tuned for future announcements.

In the meantime, keep yourself healthy and safe!

 

Our contra dances (plus potluck and music jam) are held on the 4th Saturday of most months at the Anaheim Downtown Community Center, 250 E. Center St., in Anaheim (in the heart of Orange County).  Free parking

Important Announcement from Patty McCollom, President of The Living Tradition

Regarding our Schedule Changes in Response to the Coronavirus

To:  The Living Tradition Community

March 14, 2020 

The news about coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is developing so fast that actions, which once seemed reasonable, suddenly seem inadequate.  As event planners, we can tell you that at the beginning of an emergency, we worry that we are over-reacting unnecessarily and weigh our actions very carefully.  Our greatest worry, though, is that we will look back after the emergency is over, and realize that we did not do enough.

Recently the City of Anaheim announced that due to COVID-19 concerns, the Downtown Anaheim Community Center and other community centers would be temporarily closed starting March 14.  We are in total agreement with this action, which we believe will help protect the health of the community.  Therefore, we are canceling our March 2020 concert, jam, and dance.

We certainly hope that we will be able to resume bringing dances, concerts, and music jams to the community, sooner, rather than later.

Please do your best to stay safe and healthy. 

All the best,

Patty
