Contra dancing is a tradition born in New England and now enjoyed all over the world, involving simple, lively social dancing to (most often) live music.
In Contra Dancing, your feet are never asked to do more than walk to the music. A free new dancers workshop is held before each dance then each dance is taught by the caller before it is danced. The caller continues to prompt the dancers as needed. Because the pattern of moves of each Contra Dance is repeated often, Contra Dances are easy to learn. Both beginning and experienced dancers happily share the same set.
