Contra Dance

Contra Dance is an energetic and exciting form of social dance which couples dance in two facing lines or groups of four. Throughout the course of a dance, couples interact with different couples as they progress. Contra has its roots in English Country and French dance styles re-interpreted in North America.  The music comes from Irish, Scottish and oldtime French-Canadian and probably many other styles.
