In-Person Contra Dances Return!
We are resuming in-person dances! We will be hosting indoor dances at Wightman School Community Center.
Our indoor dances will be on the 3rd, 4th, and (if there is one) 5th Fridays at 8pm at Wightman School Community Building (5604 Solway St., Pittsburgh, PA 15217). For everyone’s safety, at indoor dances, we will require:

Welcome to the Pittsburgh Contra Dance Network. We dance on the third, fourth, and (if there is one) fifth Friday nights at Wightman School (5604 Solway St., Pittsburgh, PA 15217), and, during the summer (May–July), on one Sunday a month at Avonworth Pavilion (498 Camp Horne Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15237). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at (412) 945-0554.
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. Our dances are pay what you can. Our recommended contribution is $15, but we don’t want the cost to keep you away; you can pay what works for you.
Still have questions? Wondering what to expect when you show up at a dance? See our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Please feel free to contact us at the emails linked below if you have any questions about the dance. For general questions, contact the current Contra Council coordinator who can either answer or find the people who can.
