New dancers are very welcome! Every Wednesday night dance begins with a introduction for any new dancers who arrive by 8pm. All dances are taught, but dances tend to get more challenging as the evening progresses. So, arrive early and get right on the dance floor!
Part of the fun of contra dancing is that it is challenging and requires some learning. If you have experience with square dancing though, you’ll already be familiar with many of the dance calls used in contra dancing.
Most new dancers find this takes several weeks of attending the dance, but once you know the moves, you’ve got it for good!
New dancers do best when they seek out experienced dance partners while they are learning. And, experienced dancers are always encouraged to seek out partners who are new dancers.
