WHAT IS CONTRA DANCE?

Contra is a traditional form of American social dance that shares many moves with square dancing. It’s fun and easy–it you can walk, you can contra dance! Two groups–Big Scioty Contra Dance and All Soles Contra & Square Dance–host contra dancing in Central Ohio. Both welcome beginners (with or without partners) and offer lessons before each dance. Give it a try!
