WHAT IS NEW ENGLAND CONTRADANCING

What is contradancing?

Contradancing is in many ways like "old-time square dancing
done in lines". The dances are designed so that you and
your partner will dance with every other couple in these lines.
The caller will teach each dance, telling you everything you 
need to know (we have no "classes"). The dances are done with 
a smooth walking step (so no "fancy footwork" is required).

We always dance to live (and lively!) music provided by a range 
of talented dance musicians. Reels, jigs, waltzes, and related 
tunes from American, Canadian and British Islesí traditions 
predominate, and the fiddle is often a featured instrument.

We're an exceptionally friendly group with people of all kinds 
and an age range of 7 to 70.

Our dances are  smoke and alcohol free.
Dress is casual, although we request that you bring 
non-scuffing shoes to help protect the wood floor 
(tennis shoes are fine). You don't need to bring a partner. 
Even if you do, we encourage you to dance with other people;
both learn more quickly that way!

Contra Dances have a relaxed, family-like atmosphere. 
The emphasis is on dancing. We have fun and get excellent 
exercise too.
Above all, Contra Dancers form a community of friendly, 
active people, and we welcome new dancers of any age.

New dancers are also always welcome.
We encourage new dancers to come at the beginning of the dance 
(to get the most out of the teaching) and to be prepared to smile a lot!
