Contra Dance!

  • Bates College - Muskie Archives (2nd Floor) 70 Campus Avenue Lewiston, ME, 04240 United States (map)

Come dance!

I'll be teaching an evening of contra dancing at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine on January 12, 2018! A band TBA will be playing live traditional music.

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


7:00 PM  Orientation and lesson
7:30 - 10 PM  Dancing!

FMI:  Freewill Folk Society
