The Pendleton Contra Dance Community invites the community to kick up their heels as they resume monthly events.

The upcoming dance is Friday, Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. at Pendleton Center for the Arts, 214 N. Main St. The cost is $8 per person or $12 for a couple. A live caller will provide instruction for dancers. No experience or partner is necessary.

Participants are paired up in long lines and follow the instructions of a caller, said Jill Johnson of the local group. Callers teach the easy sequence of steps before the music starts. The events are family-friendly and feature live music by local musicians.

The group hosts dances the second Friday of each month through June 2020, except December and January. For more information, contact Johnson at or visit
