CMU Campus Contra Dancing in February

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.
