Categorized as: Performing Arts & Dance
Event tags:


What is contra? Contra dance is the American cousin to Scottish and English Country set dances. It's easy, very social and very fun. Imagine a dance from a Jane Austen movie, add some American energy, throw in some casual clothes, a few extra smiles, and you’ve got a contra dance!

Beginners are very welcome. If you are new or are bringing someone who is, please arrive by 7pm to participate in the orientation class. Called dancing starts at 7:30 pm.

Come give it a try! Each dance is taught and then called by Lenore Frigo set to live music featuring Curvy Road. It’s easy dancing and uses walking steps. By the end of the night, you’ll have danced with everyone in the room.

Wear comfortable shoes and bring water. If you forget water, it is available for $1 a bottle. Finger foods are complimentary. Come on your own, or as a couple - and bring your friends!
