MORE ABOUT CONTRA DANCING
Contra Dancing is a form of social dancing that originates from “English
Country Dancing”, adopted by the French and renamed “Contra Danse” because
it occurs in two long lines that face each other, with dancers walking
through repeated patterns of movement on the floor. The early settlers
brought it to this country (where it is sometimes called New England
Country Dancing) and added the swing, and a caller who calls out the moves
so everyone can keep up easily. It’s done with a simple walking step, while
holding hands, to traditional bluegrass music. A Contra Dance can be
invigorating, engaging the mind as well as the body, and socially engaging
in that people frequently change partners. Square dancing is a much later,
westernized off-shoot of Contra Dancing. The New York Family Contra Dance
is specifically tailored to welcome all ages and all levels of experience,
and invites people attending to bring a potluck snack or beverage to share.
We look forward to seeing you at the dance!
