So what makes a Community Contra night extra special? Why, the community, of course! We will have a large and rockin’ band of community members bringing great energy and enthusiasm. We’ve got experienced and NEW Contra callers, building the capacity of our dance community to keep dancing far into the future. Join the fun, learn a new dance or two, and be sure to thank your fellow Contra Dance enthusiasts for trying their hand at calling and performing.
