    Last night was a wonderful, energetic dance with a very good band, accomplished caller and lots of people having fun. Our next Tucson Friends of Traditional Music contra dance will be on May 31. Save the date!

    Hi Jessica, there is no need for a partner or prior experience. At 630 pm there is a 1/2 hour lesson that gives you the basics and we all change partners after every dance so you will be able to dance with others who do have experience and can guide you through your unfamiliar times. Come, I bet you will enjoy it.

    Hello all I am thinking about going on Friday night but I have not done Contra dancing before nor do I have a partner. I was wondering what these dances were like and if it really mattered?
