Update to Our Upcoming 2020/2021 Contra Dances
We expect to resume dancing at a splendid hall we have used in 2019/2020, here in Las Vegas NV, once masks and 6-foot social distancing are no longer mandated.
Our Saturday, Pre-COVID Shutdown Evening Dances & Themes for 2020
Jan 4 Theme: Blue & Silver
Feb 1 Theme: Mardi Gras
Mar 7 Theme: Birds, Bees & Butterflies
Our Aprii through December 2020 dances have been canceled as we are still under our Nevada Governor’s social distancing and mask-wearing directives.
We share your interest in both suppressing the COVID-19 spread while looking forward to the time we can enjoy Contra dancing.
We are currently arranging to share via a Zoom session on Saturday, December 12th a special musical arrangement being prepared by 112 & Then Some
We are happy we have two local bands providing live music for our future post-pandemic dances: 112 And Then Some, as well as Sagebrush & Shamrocks.

If you are New to Contra?
Plan on registering by 6:15 pm. Our beginner class runs from 6:30 — 7:00 pm, with our dance commencing immediately afterward and running to 9:30 pm.
Don’t be shy If you are new to Contra dance, relax. There’s no need to bring a partner. We change partners with every dance and you’ll soon be stomping and whirling with the best of us in no time!
Note for Beginners Our brief class is available to anyone paying for the evening of dance. Please arrive early. The sooner you pick up our common figures (Do-Si-Do, Allemande Left, California Twirl, etc.), the sooner you will thoroughly enjoy dancing with us!
Have an 8 Year Old or Older Child? You are welcome to have them join us on the dance floor. They’ll have more fun than texting and will learn early the life-long pleasure of dance!
