Contra dancing is a social dance. Contra is pure fun and not for competition or performance. It requires no experience and focuses on community, making friends and dancing to a variety of music. You don’t need to bring a partner – part of the tradition is switching partners each time. A caller teaches each dance, so no lessons are needed; just show up and have fun!

————-Larks and Ravens Dance———–
Contras all over the United States have started using Larks and Ravens to represent dance roles. These terms encourage all dancers to dance whichever role they prefer, and also promote dancing both roles. The “Lark” starts and ends the swings on the Left, and the “Raven” starts and ends the swing on the Right. Also, “Larks” and “Ravens” have the same syllables and accents as “Gents” and “Ladies,” so it’s easier for callers who are used to “Gents” and “Ladies” to switch from the old terms to the new terms. Every First Tuesday of the month!
