Contra Dance!

  • State Street Church 159 State Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Come dance!

I'll be teaching an evening of contra dancing at State Street Church in Portland, Maine for Portland Intown Contra Dance on April 27, 2017! Anadama 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

7:30 - 10 PM  Dancing!
