Contra dancing is participatory American folk dancing — vigorous and enthusiastic. Contra dances feature “live music” every time — Irish fiddle music, Old Time fiddle music or some “wild derivation.” Fun and easy to do, each dance is taught before the music begins. Our Friday night dance is held 2nd and 4th Fridays at 8pm with both a beginner lesson at 7:15 p.m. All are welcome, and no partner is needed.
