Dance location through May 2018: Shiloh Center 3832 Mintwood St. Pittsburgh, PA 15201

Bus Transportation: There is ample bus transportation with stops very close to the venue! The 54, 64, 86, 87, 88, and 93 all make stops near by.

Parking: may be a little more difficult to find, however, there is street parking. There is also a parking lot at 37th and Mintwood (two streets over- we will have signs up directing you there!). We cannot park at the Health Department parking lot.

Accessibility: Unfortunately this location is not ADA accessible. And has some steep stairs to get into the building. 


Welcome to the Pittsburgh Contra Dance Network. We currently dance Saturdays at the Shiloh Center on Mintwood St. See the schedule and directions pages for more details.

Contra dance is a fun, social activity. We welcome people from all backgrounds, genders, races, abilities, ages, and experience levels from absolute beginners to long-time dancers. Our dances feature live music and all dances are taught. Bring yourselves, bring your friends, join the fun. Dances start at 8pm, with a beginner’s lesson at 7:30pm. The cost is $10 for adults and $7 for students.
