Class: Contra Dancing Workshop

DescriptionContra is the new and hip social dance, with its roots in Square
Dance and traditional Appalachian/Irish music. It’s a great way to
connect with people in a fun, friendly, and happy twirling
environment! The focus of this workshop will be learning the
different contra dance moves, learning how the dances work
with the music, learning how to balance in dance movement with
others, and to have fun! Then go out with confidence, using newfound
skills, to actual contra dance events
