Next Meetup

Contra Dance and bring a friend!
Join us for a fun and energetic evening. Music will be by one of our favorite local bands, Orion (Steve Suhring on fiddle, Ken Veazey on keyboard and Joe Healey on hammered dulcimer, banjo and other noisy things.) Calling will be by Nicholas Smith of Charlottesville -- this will be an excellent dance for newbies and experienced folks alike. Please wear clean, soft-soled shoes (flats are best, ladies) and bring a goody to share at the break. $10 for non-TCDC members; $8 for members. You can join TCDC at the door and save $2 off all dances for the year -- plus help the local dance community.

What we're about

Norfolk Contra Dancers (TRADIN') meet on the third Saturday of every month to dance to live music with a caller. Contra dancing has moves similar to old-time square dancing, done with a partner and another couple in a line. No costume or partner is required and there is new dancer orientation every month. Anyone who can walk can contra dance! New dancers are always welcome, so come out and join us.

For directions to the venue, click on the green "Pages" tab above.

There are other YouTube clips, too that will give you a good idea of what contra dancing looks like.
