Contra Dance

Filed under: Recreation, Health and Fitness — Jocko @ 12:20 pm

Dance to the music of Rig a Jig with caller Doug Patterson.

Contra Dancing is a form of American folk dance in which the dancers form a set of two parallel lines which run the length of the hall. Each dance consists of a sequence of moves that ends with couples having progressed one position up or down the set. As the sequence is repeated, a couple will eventually dance with every other couple in the set. Contra Dancing was all the rage in 1800.

Partner not required and all ages welcome.
