Hillsboro Contra Dance

Odd Fellows Hall (NEW ON GOING LOCATION)

$12.00

Contra Dancing is a type of Folk dance open to all, regardless of experience. Live music consists, but not limited to, Irish, Scottish, Old-time and French-Canadian folk tunes. Beginner-level instructions are given 30 minutes before the regular dance begins. Then the regular dance begins by couples forming long lines down the length of the dance hall. A caller then teaches the steps for the current dance by having dancers walking through the steps just before the music starts for that dance. The music starts and the caller calls out the steps (as done in Square Dancing). Dancers repeat the sequence a number of times before the dance end. Often 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the length of the contra lines.
