Event Description

social dancers

Contra dancing is fun and dynamic. Dance patterns are performed by couples in two lines. A caller provides instruction before each dance begins and prompts dancers as the dance begins and throughout the dance when needed.The music is always live, performed by some of the best bands in the region. Dress comfortably, especially shoes! It is not necessary to bring your own partner; there are plenty of folks to switch off and dance with. Dayton Contra Dance Parties welcome all people, beginning and more experienced, singles and couples, to join in, providing a good time from your very first dance visit! Lesson begins at 7:30.
