    What the heck is Contra Dancing?

                            Calling all beginners ………!

    Even though we know no one, we are all kindred spirits on the dance floor.  Why don’t we meet this Friday, stumble around, learn together and have fun feeling embarrassed ! 

    A short welcoming session starts at 7:30, where we walk through the various figures common to the dances of the evening; most forms are easy walking steps. No complicated dance steps to memorize! No need to bring a partner! A smoke and alcohol free environment! All dances are called! 

    Wear comfortable clothing, bring clean-soled comfy shoes (to keep the floor clean - *no street shoes please*), bring a water bottle for thirst, consider bringing snacks to share during break and most importantly, a big smile!

    Traditional New England contra dancing, featuring live music and loads of fun in a family-friendly atmosphere.  This form of dance grew from Irish, Scottish, English, French-Canadian and other community dances, and most forms are easy walking steps.

    Dance shoes
