Contra dance has been enjoyed in America since before the Revolution. This New England tradition has been passed on for generations by dancers, callers, and musicians who enjoy the vibrant social activity. Contra dance is similar to square dancing but is done in long lines or circles of couples rather than in squares. All dances are taught and prompted by a caller with a live band playing lively traditional jigs and reels.
We have two contra dances scheduled. We hope to see you there. Come with your dancing shoes on.
Young people are welcome, but they need to be accompanied by adults.
