Contra Dance!

  • State Street Church 156 State Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Come dance!

I'll be teaching half an evening of dance at Portland Intown Contra Dance in Portland, ME on March 15! Joining me will be caller Ezra Smith and the band Birl. Sound provided by Alex Hennings.

Contra is a form of traditional New England folk social dance that is expressive, high-energy, and accessible. In fact, just about anybody can do it - no experience, no partner needed.

Come if:

  • You want your face to hurt from smiling
  • You've always wanted to learn to dance, but have felt like you couldn't
  • You just want to feel *good* mentally, physically, and socially
  • You're a regular dancer and want to have a great time
