Contra dance is a form of folk dance, similar to square dancing, but with lines of dancers rather than squares. In this gender-free version, instead of typical male-female gender roles, dancers determine their own role as a leader or follower.
Live music will be provided by local band The Cosmic Otters, and all dances will be taught by caller Rachel Wallace.
7:30 – 8:00 PM – Lessons for contra newbies; 8:00 – 10:00 PM – Dance for all with a bit of time for socializing afterwards. No advance planning or experience is needed, Admission is $10, however, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
