This group is primarily about Contra Dancing, with opportunities to deepen the connections of our local dance community through group camping and hiking activities associated with Contra Dances. You do not have to plan to camp or hike in order to participate in dances, nor do you have to dance to be a part of posted camping and hiking activities. You should consider joining this group if you enjoy at least one of these activities and want to meet people who might share your interests. Events in this group will probably almost always include a Contra Dance and may or may not include an opportunity to camp and/or hike as well. Each event will specify how to participate in the individual activities separately if applicable. All skill levels welcome! Contra is great for beginning dancers!
