An evening mix of contras and waltzes.  Contra dancing is participatory American folk dancing — vigorous and enthusiastic. Contra dances feature “live music” every time — Irish fiddle music, Old Time fiddle music or some “wild derivation.” Fun and easy to do, each dance is taught before the music begins.   All are welcome, and no partner is needed.
