All dances are taught by our callers and experienced dancers will welcome you and other new dancers. No partner or experience is necessary. Contra Dancing is the American descendant of English Country Dancing and has figures similar to those from square dancing (swing, do-si-do, etc).
Please bring an additional pair of clean, soft-soled shoes to protect the floor. Please refrain from wearing perfume or cologne. Admission is usually $5 ($4 for students and senior citizens), which pays for our callers, bands, and dance hall rent. Be sure to arrive in time for our 7:30pm New Dancer Orientation.
All ages welcome - young children must be supervised
