Open Community Contra Dance

Age 7+

April 3, 7:00-8:30pm

Contra dancing is an American folk original, older than our country, but up-to-date as tomorrow – a true living tradition! You and a partner interact with everyone else in the hall, dancing a repeating pattern to energetic music, sometimes walking, sometimes spinning. This dance style accommodates all experience levels, from the newbie to the enthusiast. No experience necessary, drop-ins welcome. Comfortable clothes and low heeled shoes recommended.

Teaching Artist: Mark Lewis

Cost: Donations Accepted

Bio: Mark and Diane Lewis met Contra dancing and have never stopped since. They are tireless in seeking to pass on their enthusiasm for this and other related group social dance traditions, using a light-hearted teaching style that makes learning easy and fun.
