ContraPop is folk dancing to the latest & greatest pop music! Folk dancing has a long 500+ year history and is fun, social, and good for your health.

An evening’s dances will be chosen from any of several folk-dance traditions, depending on numbers, but the unifying feature will be the use of pop music wherever possible. Here are some of the things we’ll do:

  • Contra dances
  • Sequence couples dances
  • Bush dances
  • Scottish country dances
  • Irish set dances
  • Dances which I’ve written

Dancers of all experience levels welcome! No partner necessary, but the more the merrier so bring your friends & family along. Wear flats as there is a lot of movement. Tea & coffee are available by coin donation. Parents are welcome to bring kids (only issue may be a few dodgy lyrics in a few pop songs). Kids can join in the dancing if they can cope, otherwise there’s a playground in an enclosed space and other facilities to keep kids amused.

WHEN:  Fridays 6 – 8 pm

WHERE:  Turner Scout Hall, 11 Masson St, Turner

HOW MUCH: $8 ($6 members, concession, student, etc).
