Title: Fort Worth Contra Dancing

Where: 5519 S. Hulen Street, Fort Worth, TX 76132

When: 7 - 10:00 p.m.

Description: Contra dancing is a type of group dancing that dates back at least to the 1600s and was brought to North America by the early settlers.  It could be called "Early American Folk Dancing."  It is not necessary to bring a partner, and no previous experience is required.  If you can walk, you can do contra dancing.  The dancing will be done to live acoustic music. Instead of continuing with a description, may we suggest that you go to YouTube.com, search for "Contra Dancing" and look at the videos.  It is a lot of fun and contra dancers are among the friendliest folks around.

Price: $7. for members of the North Texas Traditional Dance Society, $9. for non-members.

Other details: No smoking or alcoholic beverages will be allowed at the Fort Worth contra dances.  This includes the parking area both before and after the dances.  In other words - "No Tailgate Parties."  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter so we may keep in the good graces of our landlords.

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.
