What is a Contra Dance?
Similar to square dancing, contra dancing is a social dance that is popular around North America. Lines of couples perform simple footwork patterns, walking steps, and twirls to a live band playing Celtic, French Canadian, and American music. A dance caller calls out the pattern of the dance for the dancers to follow, so each dance is new and fun.
