get yourselves to the

2nd Saturday Contra Dance Party

  • First-time and experienced contra dancers welcome
  • Variety of great callers and musicians each month
  • Occasional Saturday afternoon special events and pre-dance potlucks or weekends

Beginners are welcome: Unless otherwise noted in an announcement, beginners are always welcome. There is an introductory session 30 minutes before the dance, so first-timers come early. Come alone or bring a friend. Anyone can ask anyone else to dance; experienced dancers are happy to help new people. It's a common practice to change partners after each dance sequence, and it works well while you're learning the basics; after that, it's up to you. Wear cool, comfortable clothes and flat shoes that aren't sticky.

More information on contra dancing is available here.
