Contra dance at Princeton Country Dancers. Free for first-time dancers!

Suzanne Patterson Center

$10.00

7:30 pm Intro to Basics Workshop 8-10:30 pm Contra dance Contra dancing can be aerobic! Most dancers like to wear short-sleeved shirts and skirts, pants or shorts, depending on the season. Don't forget to dress in layers – what may be comfortable at the start of the evening might be too hot by the second or third dance. To protect the floor of the hall, please bring clean, SOFT-SOLED SHOES to dance in. Princeton Country Dancers: Where feet fly and spirits soar!
