Meet new people, enjoy getting your exercise, dance to great live
music – all at the San Francisco Contra Dance!  If you like to dance,
you will love Contra dancing.  The most social type of dancing you can
find - it is not necessary to come with a partner – everyone can and
does ask everyone to dance.   A free beginner’s lesson precedes every
dance, and all dances are taught.

What you can expect at the San Francisco Contra Dance:

  • Friendly people of all ages and persuasions – young and old, married, couples, single, alone or with friends
  • LBGT friendly
  • Live music from various traditions - Celtic and American fiddle traditions, Irish to Old Time to contemporary
  • Special theme dances such as gender-free, techno, community band and more
  • Free delicious snacks at the break
  • New dancers are always welcome.
  • Affordable, social, healthy fun!

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.
