This group is for anyone who wants to partake in the healthful, active, joyful fun of contra dancing. Contra dancing is an easy-to-learn community-type dance. The music is always live; you don't need to bring a partner; all the dances are taught and prompted by the caller. If you can walk, listen to music, and know your right hand from your left, you can contra dance! People contra dance all over the country (try Googling "contra dancing") and we are lucky enough to have our own contra dance once a month in Newcastle. It happens on the third Saturday of the month at 8:00 at the Newcastle Portuguese Hall, 690 Taylor Road. There's always a newcomer orientation at 7:30.
