Shaker Barn Music: Contra Dance

September 28, 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Give folk-style line dancing a whirl with caller Fern Bradley, who instills confidence in new and experienced dancers alike with her relaxed style. Doors open at 6 pm.

Contra, an easy-to-learn style of dance, incorporates parallel lines of dancers who begin by standing opposite (contra to) their partners. In response to the caller’s instructions, each couple interacts with the couple next to them to form a four-person set, and each set interacts with the sets on either side of them. Over the course of a dance, the couples move up and down the hall, interacting with every other couple in their multi-set line.
