The dance workshop begins at 7:30 p.m. and the Contra dance at 8:00 p.m. Contra Dancing is a popular form of partnered folk dance usually danced in two facing lines. The music is provided by a live band playing traditional music. A caller instructs the dancers in the steps for each dance. All age dancers and levels of experience are welcome, so it is very family friendly. Participants may come with a dance partner or singly and find partners at the dance. In the dance workshops prior to the dances the Caller teaches beginner dancers the basic steps.
