What we're about

Contra dance is a kind of social dance with live music where a caller teaches the figures. You don't need to come with a partner, and while there is a short lesson before each of our dances it's optional. Most people learn contra dancing by doing it.

You should wear comfortable clothes that you can move easily in. High heels don't work well. We'll have water but if you'd like to save cups bringing a water bottle is good.
