Come Contra Dance!

Contra dancing…

  • “refers to a folk dance style in which couples dance in two facing lines” (wikipedia.com)
  • is like square dancing. But better.
  • is easy to learn. All you need are dancing shoes but sneakers will do.
  • has a “caller.” She’ll tell you what to do and how to do it. There are very few “steps” involved (this is not riverdance), just general movement in circles and lines.
  • is more fun in long skirts that look pretty when they spin. (because swinging your partner is involved).
  • is done to live music. fiddles, guitars and a piano, playing traditional Irish, Scottish and American tunes.
