Welcome to CFOOTMAD, your information source for contra and traditional dancing and music around Boulder, Denver and the Front Range.
All in-person dances have been cancelled due to COVID-19.
We miss dancing in person, but recognize the need to protect the well-being of our community. This will pass, and we do look forward to dancing with you when it does.
Online Dancing and Social Gatherings!
CFOOTMAD is working to present online events, including Zoom dances, concerts, and social events.
One of these is All Hands In, a virtual dance series cooperatively produced by a number of dance communities across North America. These events combine time for conversation (with a dedicated Colorado breakout room) with dancing to national bands and callers. The dances are modified so that one or two people can dance them, and they are a lot of fun! Calls are gender-neutral ("larks" and "robins"), but roles don't matter much if you're dancing on your own. Admission is free, but suggested donations help support the bands.
All Hands In dances every second and fourth Saturday. Social gatherings begin at 5pm MST, with dancing starting at 5:30.
