Contra dancing is a great way to get your dance on! Beginners are welcome and no partner is necessary. If you can walk and know the difference between left and right, you can successfully contra dance! Most of the movements in contra dancing are based on a walking or skipping step. Dancers move through a number of specific figures, sometimes holding hands, sometimes by themselves. Each dance is prompted by a caller, so that each figure and movement is called in time to the music. You don’t need to rely on your memory alone to know what to do. Contra dancing is fun, great exercise, and best of all, you never need to worry about having a partner or experience to dance with us! The Sacramento Country Dance Society members are very friendly and welcoming and we love when new people join us. All dances are taught and prompted and we pride ourselves on always having live music. In addition to contra dances SCDS sponsors monthly English country dances. Come join us and see what all the fun is about! A complete schedule of our dance appears on the www.sactocds.org calendar page. We look forward to seeing you at our next dance!
