Norfolk Contra Dancers (TRADIN') meet on the third Saturday of every month to dance to live music with a caller. Contra dancing has moves similar to old-time square dancing, done with a partner and another couple in a line. No costume or partner is required and there is new dancer orientation every month. Anyone who can walk can contra dance!  New dancers are always welcome, so come out and join us.

For directions to the venue, click on the green "Pages" tab above.

There are other YouTube clips, too that will give you a good idea of what contra dancing looks like.

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.
