Despite re-opening in July, English Country Dancing will not meet August 8 due to the high rate of hospitalizations in Austin. Please see Austin Public Health for more information.

Brand New to Contra and ECD?

Contra and English Country dancing are fun and easy to learn, no partner or experience necessary. A caller leads the dancers through a series of moves, and the pattern repeats. If you can walk, you can dance. Learn more about contra dancing here and ECD here.
