(A.K.A. Contra Dance, Traditional Square Dance, Community Dance, Family Dance)

No experience is required.
You do not need to bring a partner.

We will dance contras, squares, some English Country set dances, and some couples dances (swing, waltz, salsa, others).

All dances are taught and prompted. Singles welcome. You are not required to bring a partner. We change partners between dances for maximum social interaction.

Are you new to contra dancing? Part of the fun is that it includes some challenges and requires some learning. If you have experience with English country dancing or square dancing, you'll already be familiar with many of the dance calls used in contra dancing. Most new dancers find this takes several hours or even several sessions, but once you know the moves, you've got it for good!

This series is geared for new dancers, with the aim of creating a core of experienced and welcoming dancers. New dancers do best when they seek out experienced dance partners while they are learning. And, experienced dancers are always encouraged to seek out partners who are new dancers.
