Contra Dancing Coming to the Grange

Contra Dancing

What Is Contra Dance?

Contra dancing is a form of social American folk dancing similar to square dancing.

The contra dance is also known as English country dance, New England folk dance, a barn dance, or Appalachian folk dance.

In contra dancing, long lines of couples dance together, performing simple footwork patterns, walking steps, and twirls. 

Dancers perform to folk music played by a live band featuring mandolins, banjos, and accordions, while a caller calls out the pattern for everyone to follow. Dancers usually wear comfortable shoes and clothes, making contra dancing a casual, social dance form.

Join the Banner Grange on April 6th from 7pm to 10pm. For more information, call us at (530) 273-8747.
