About the dance

This is a contra dance for all experience levels, including absolute beginners! Dances begin with some brief instruction, after which each dance is introduced with a walkthrough. If you’ve never tried contra dance, here are some links:

If you play contra dance music, you’re welcome to join the band, and if you have a dance to call, please bring it along! This is a great place to practice your skills.

Please consider bringing an extra pair of shoes for dancing – we request that snow-covered boots and other wet shoes be placed outside the dance room.
