Contra Dance!

What is Contra Dancing?

Fun!  Exciting. Swirling. Walking. A "Caller" will lead the dancers by calling each movement throughout the dance as the dancers progressively swirl down one end of the dance floor to the other end. ALL AGES can do it. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. Can come alone. Super Nice Folks. Experienced Dancers will help you.  You will start dancing on the first song. Great exercise. Only $7( $5 seniors ) for hours of dancing to really great live music - banjos, fiddles and more.

Come at 6:30 for dance lessons.  Music and Dancing start at 7pm.

There will be someone at the Check-in table to Welcome You and show you where to go and what to to. Feel Free to ask for Patrice - I may be there at 6:30, for sure at 7pm.

Free Parking.

Come on out and dance your cares away.  It's a BLAST!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
