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.

The Fire Ant Frolic Halloween gathering will be held over Zoom on the evening of October 31, featuring 'live' music from Noah and Andrew VanNorstrand. Email to register.
