Everyone is welcome to these community social events. The evening begins with easy dances for newcomers, and all dances are taught. You don't need experience or a partner; bring yourself, a snack to share, and a smile.

Dance starts at 7:30 and ends at 10:30.

Based on advice from the Country Dance & Song Society (CDSS), to follow local health advisories, there are no dances scheduled through July 2021.


We will keep you posted on any further changes as we monitor the situation. This aligns with local advice from health officials as well as in alignment with other contra dance communities in MO and nearby who are also canceling. We will miss getting to see you all at the dances over the next few weeks; however, please be safe and take care of each other until we get to meet again at a dance real soon. https://www.cdss.org/covid19
