*** I’ve never danced Contra before!
That’s totally fine! Contra is an easy to learn partner dance and very forgiving—make sure you come to the lesson at 7:30 and you’ll be good to go. If you can walk, you can Contra.
*** What does “gender-free” mean?
It means you can dance with all of your friends! We provide a lesson and calling that are gender neutral, making it easy to try either role. Everyone is encouraged to dance with anyone they choose, in any role, regardless of their gender.
*** Why start this dance when there are already Contra dances in LA?
We’re taking a traditional dance and making it modern and accessible to everyone.
*** I love this. How can I help?
Come to our dances, and invite your friends!
