    Contra dancing is informal, with easily-learned dance steps taught by a caller. You do not need to bring a partner with you, as it is customary to switch partners after each dance.

  • CALLER: Don Veino. Don calls for all levels, from festivals and major dance series to community dances (which typically focus on being supportive of new dancers and include dancers of all ages and abilities). His programs for dances normally include good compositions which are often different from typical mainstream programs - such that experienced dancers find something new/different and new dancers get a wonderful first experience.

  • MUSIC: Kingfisher. Kingfisher is a Boston-based contra dance band, consisting of Cecilia Vacanti (fiddle) and Jeff Kaufman (piano, mandolin, drums, synths).

  • COVID: Vaccination Certificates are required (2 shots or 1 of J&J). Boosters are encouraged. Masks are required.

  • ADMISSION: $10 pp, $5 students.

  • PARKING: Parking is behind the church adjacent or next to Pleasant Street and there is an overflow parking area just across Howard Street where Pleasant Street starts.

  • DRESS: Dress is casual and please bring shoes that move easily on the wood floor. Best to wear layers of comfortable clothing!
