Contra dancing is fun! We dance to a live band of talented musicians. A caller walks us through the moves and prompts the figures during the dance. You and your partner dance the sequence with other couples down a line of couples. Partners are exchange for the next dance. Beginners are welcome and all the dances will be taught. You do not need to bring a partner.
Watch one of our contra dances by clicking on the "Video" tab above.
This dance, our first in over two years, will be shorter than usual and there will not be a beginner lesson. Please aim to arrive between 7:30 PM when the doors open and be ready to dance at 8 PM.
Our band for the evening will be: Greg Brown, Ian Clark, and Richard Forest. Well known to Ottawa dancers, each of these accomplished musicians has played for our dances on numerous occasions, but this is their debut as a trio!
