About Contra Dancing
Contra Dancing is a tradition born in New England and now enjoyed all over the world.
It involves simple, lively social dancing to live music.
Performed in lines with a partner, a caller teaches each dance
and cues dancers throughout, in time to live music.
Contra dancing is many forms of exercise at once, developing flexibility, grace,
coordination and aerobic conditioning. Come play, exercise and listen to traditional music.
Who knew exercise could be so much fun?
Wear comfortable clothing. Please, no heavy perfumes.
Everyone Welcome! Come alone or bring friends; no partner or experience necessary.
Singles, couples, families all welcome. An activity for all ages.
*All dances taught.*
New dancers always welcome regardless of experience.
See for yourself...
