What is contra dancing? It’s social dancing with everyone dancing the same pattern again and again up and down a long line. It’s easy to learn! You’ll choose a different partner for each dance, and eventually you’ll have interacted with nearly everyone in the hall. There’s lots of swinging and lots of brisk walking and lots of smiles.
What you need to know:
Newcomers are welcome, and no partner is needed (but do bring your friends!).
Wear cool loose clothing. The hall is air-conditioned.
Please bring your own water bottle, also wear flat shoes, with clean, non-slippery, non-grippy soles.
Mask & vaccination alert!: Contra dancing is aerobic and everyone mixes around, therefore strict covid protocols are in effect. Masks required whenever you are in the main dance hall.
Experienced dancers & first timers all are welcome!
