What is Techno Contra?

What is Techno Contra? It is described as “glow-stick fueled, high-energy Contra with a twist” and “Traditional American dancing to club music”. Techno Contra is the catch phrase for high energy Contra dancing to modern music accompanied by special effects lighting.

Tapestry has newly been exploring the world of Techno Contra, with enthusiastic response from groups of young dancers showing up not only from the metro area but all the way from Rochester and Ames. The Tapestry Techno crew is listening to the dancers’ suggestions, and this new adventure is rolling! Come and check it out.

BYOE (Bring Your Own Ear plugs), Glow necklaces provided ($0.75 suggested donation)
