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!
