Free Contra Dance!

  • Congress Square Park Corners of High and Congress Streets Portland, ME 04101 USA (map)

Come dance!

I'll be teaching a free evening of contra dancing at Congress Square Park in Portland, Maine on August 16, 2017! Volution will be playing live traditional music. This event is free thanks to a partnership between Friends of Congress Square Park and Portland Intown Contra Dance.

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


6:00 - 8:00 PM  Free Dancing!

FMI:  Portland Intown Contra Dance or Friends of Congress Square Park
