What do you know about Contra dancing?

I know it's fun, easy, very social, good exercise, spiritually uplifting, addicting . . . it is a wholesome and joyous pastime which heals and nourishes my spirit.

If you have Contra danced before, what originally got you interested in it?

A dear friend suggested I try it (I must thank her again). Plus, I am a Type II Diabetic and this has become a favorite way to exercise.

What do you recommend I do to help spread the word about these dances?

Oh, I don't know. This is a good start; Facebook is good, too. Send press releases to all the local major television, radio, and press news outlets repeatedly announcing the Cal Dance Coop . . . oh, and Huell Howzer, too. (I'm only kind of kidding.)


I love contra dancing.
