Contra dance comes all the way from America and is cousin to the familiar Scottish ceilidh. This month live music will be provided by Grace Emery and Sam DePasquale. Rachel Wallace will be calling the dances.

In order to make our dance as inclusive and welcoming as possible we will use the terms “Larks” and “Ravens” as positional markers for the person who stands on the Left and the person who stands on the Right. Many other dances in North America and in the UK have switched to using these terms with great success. Our callers are experienced in teaching with these terms and we are excited about this change.

All are welcome, family friendly, no partner needed, no experience necessary. 15-minute welcome session for new dancers starts at 7:45pm. £10, children 12 and under are free. Come along and give it a go!
