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.
