"Americans have contra danced since the Revolutionary period. They combined ideas from French and English country dancing, with their own Yankee ways of having fun, and came up with contra dancing. It is a social dance akin to square dancing that has retained its simple, open, community-oriented spirit. . . . With a little courage, a sense of adventure, and a spirit of community energy, you too can be enjoying this traditional social activity. You do not need to know how to dance, nor do you need to bring a partner. All dances will be taught and prompted by a caller with a live, acoustic band." -- Rob Craighurst
Wear comfortable, supportive shoes that you can walk a mile in, and dress to dance!
