Contra Dance

Contra Dance

Contra dancing to live music, with a caller! This American dance form is related to square dancing, and featuring repeating patterns danced in long facing (“contra”) lines. All dances are taught before they are called. Fun is guaranteed!

This next week, local favorites the Long Forgotten String Band will be playing the tunes, and Richard Hopkins will be teaching and calling the figures. LFSB have perfected the art of playing for our dances, and of matching appropriate tunes to the dances. They are a pleasure to work with and to dance to.
