Contra Dance To GREAT LIVE MUSIC at the IAHC

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.  You DO NOT NEED TO BRING A PARTNER. 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 till 10pm with a 15 minute break.  The dancing is continuous - once one is finished, the next one starts!

** THIS IS A NON HOSTED EVENT ** - this Contra Dance happens every Monday, with some exceptions, throughout the year.  Always double check schedule at http://www.chicagobarndance.org/.

There will be Always be someone at the Check-in table to Welcome You!  Feel Free to inform them that you came via Meet Up and/or this is your first Contra Dance and they will be happy to show you where to go and what to do.  Also feel free to ask for Patrice, I try to attend every dance and will be happy to help.

Free Parking in the Lot.

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

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
