Calling All Charity-Minded Contra Dancers

March 5, 2004

THE Clayfoot Strutters, famous for their Contra Dance (like square dancing), Zydeco and Waltz music will give a concert in the hotel Villas Zurquí Saturday, March 6 at 8 p.m.

The dance starts at 9:30 p.m. Kathy Anderson, a caller with international fame, will lead the dances.

It will be the band’s third visit to Costa Rica, accompanying a group of tourists of the Pura Vida Dance Camp, who get together every year in the Albergue Hacienda Moravia de Chirripó to enjoy the beautiful mountains during the day and their favorite dances at night.

AFTER visiting the indigenous reserve Cabécar de Chirripó, the band decided to give this benefit concert in San José to collect funds for the purchase of materials for the indigenous schools in the area.

For reservations call 381-6500 or 228-4285. Tickets, $20 per person, include the concert, the dance and appetizers.

Hotel Villas Zurquí is on the

Guápiles Highway

, 125 meters east of the Zurquí gas station.
