WHAT IS CONTRA DANCING?
If Swing dancing and Square dancing met in a bar, you’d get Contra!
Contra dancing is a type of community folk dance. You’ll dance to live music with a partner, but bringing a partner is not necessary. Contra Dancing is a great way to meet new people!
More info can be found at www.brooklyncontra.org
Folks who haven’t danced before are encouraged to attend the introductory lesson at 7:30pm, which is followed by dancing for everyone from 8:00 to 11:00pm.
To maintain the beautiful floor at Camp Friendship, please bring clean, soft-soled shoes. Hard soles and heels are very hard on our floor.
General admission is $15 and student tickets are $12
