Contra Dance is an American folk tradition similar to Square Dance, only we dance in long lines to live music! Come alone, with a partner or with friends. There is a Caller who teaches each new dance and prompts the moves throughout the dance. Then you thank this partner and ask someone new to dance :) Experienced dancers will often ask new folks to dance, to help them learn the ropes. The music is often Irish Jigs and Reels, Klezmer, Old-Time, Bluegrass or something else! Bring your dance shoes, a water bottle and perhaps something to share at the break/snack.
