jamming after a dance

Real People

Maybe you’re wondering what kinds of people come to a contra dance. There are extroverts and introverts; awkward and athletic folks; people under 40 and people over; medical professionals, welders, realtors, librarians, homemakers, techies, Trekkies, and… well, “all ages and all abilities” might just sum it up. Bottom line? If you know your “right” from your “left” most of the time, and are able to count to eight, there’s a place for you here!

But the most amazing thing? For the space of an evening, people of very different backgrounds, lifestyles, habits and convictions put aside those differences in order to come together and delight in the dance.
