WHAT IS CONTRA DANCING?
If Swing dancing and Square dancing met in a bar, youd get Contra.
Contra dancing is a type of community folk dance. Youll dance to live music with a partner, although bringing a partner is not necessary. Contra Dancing is a great way to meet new people!
Couples form parallel lines and, over the course of the dance, move up and down the dance floor, interacting with every other couple in their line. There is no fancy footwork involved anyone can do it! Calling all of the dances from the stage, the Dance Caller teaches each dance before the music starts. As the dance progresses, the Dance Caller provides fewer and fewer prompts until, dropping out entirely, they allow you, your partner, and everyone else on the dance floor to finish the dance accompanied only by the exciting music!
