About Our Contra Dances
Everyone is welcome! Partners and dancing experience are not necessary. Each of the dozen or so dance forms during the evening are taught and prompted (except for the waltz and hambo).
Beginner’s Workshop: dancers are encouraged to attend the beginner’s lesson at 5:40. Regular dancing begins at 6:00 (dances can get more complex as the night goes on).
Admission: Suggested admission donation is $12 regular, $20 for supporters, $8 for full-time students w/student ID card. Cash only. Discounts for volunteers.
Wear: Comfortable, non-marking shoes to protect your feet and our floors – a separate pair of dance shoes works best. You’ll be more comfortable in loose-fitting light-weight clothing.
