For those who don’t know, the Carnegie Alliance of Traditional and Social (CATS) Dance organization holds monthly contra dances on the Carnegie Mellon University campus. In February there are 2 dances! Dancers from the greater Pittsburgh community are welcome at these these dances.
Sunday February 3 is the standard monthly campus contra in Skibo Small Gym – Ron Buchanan is calling to Band du Jour, 5:30-8:30 pm.
Saturday February 23 is a less traditional dance – From DC, Janine Smith and DJ Improper are coming up to run a techno contra! Techno music, black lights, and American folk dance make a compelling crossover.
