•Contra dancing is energetic, social dancing that's fun for everyone (all ages are welcome) and no partner is necessary.

•The music is live.

•No experience necessary --- dances are taught, walked through, and called.

•No special dress is required --- wear comfortable, casual attire and soft-soled shoes.

•As a favor to dancers who are sensitive or allergic, please refrain from wearing cologne, perfume, or scented products, or clothes smelling of cigarettes or incense.

•If you are new, please come to the beginner lesson (workshop) that begins about 15 minutes before the dance. Click 'NEW TO CONTRA' tab above.

•Snacks at the break are provided by dancers. If you snack, please bring one to share --- and a water bottle to help our planet.

•Parking is in the lot across the street from the Boltin Center and in marked spaces on adjacent streets.
