Contra Dance
the next dance in the 40+ year-old Montpelier Contra Dance series features caller: Alex Deis-Lauby calling to Pete’s Posse


Dances are done in lines of couples. All ages -from 5 to 105. Each couple follows the calls, dancing with another couple. After you and your partner have done the dance figures with one couple you do them with the next couple in line. By the end of the dance you have danced with everyone in your set. There are about 9 or 10 dances in an evening. The convention is to ask a different partner for each dance and to ask people you don't know to dance. You get to hear lively music, enjoy some exercise, meet your neighbors, and build our community
Please help us preserve our dance floor! Bring a pair of clean, soft-soled shoes, and change into them downstairs before joining the dance on the main floor.
