Join dozens of dancers every week for tons of fun, great music, and all for free! Our Wednesday night contras are held in the main hall at the Hancock Recreation Center, in the middle of the golf course at 41st and Red River Streets. Enter by using the driveway on 41st St., just west of Red River; go up the hill to the Center and the parking lot. A brief beginners session is taught at 7:30, before the dance program begins. There is no charge for this event, as the musicians and caller perform for free!. Dance ends about 9:50. All dances are taught and called, no experience or partner required, comfortable casual clothes and soft-soled shoes recommended.

    Hi, thanks for explanation. I'm glad to hear that this venue is public transit accessible. You will definitely see me in the upcoming weeks: ) I'm unpacking today: )

    Hi, I'm new to Austin. In fact, I'm moving there on Tuesday and am considering to attend the Wednesday event. However, the description leads me to believe that there is no way to get to the event via public transit. Am I wrong? It looks like bus #3 stops not too far away. Is the area safe to walk?

      Walking should be fine. I suspect you'll be able to catch a ride (at least to the bus) after the dance.

    The 338 and 15 both stop at the Hancock HEB, at 41st and Red River. Walk east along 41st. About 100 yards past Red River, go left up an asphalt driveway. The Hancock recreation center is a stone clubhouse for the golf course. I have taken the bus several times, and it seems like a safe neighborhood to me. You will probably be able to catch a ride home from the dance.
