***Important note*** The BAC requests that everyone wear soft-soled or leather soled shoes to preserve the floor–no spike heels or cowboy boots, please. Please carry-in appropriate dance shoes as needed.

Newcomers and experienced dancers always welcome to all events. Every dance is taught and called throughout the evening. If you’re new to contra dancing, we encourage you to come to the introductory lesson at 7:00 pm. If you’re an experienced dancer, we encourage you to bring newcomers to the introductory lesson.

Contra dancing can be vigorous exercise. Wear light-weight, comfortable clothes. Non-smoking, non-alcoholic event. Good exercise! No partner needed. Come alone or bring a friend or two or three! Fun for the whole family.

General admission is $8.  For ages 16-25 or with student ID, admission is $5.  And as always, children 15 and under will be admitted at no charge.

See you on the dance floor!
