Tuesday, June 19 at Clemmons Civic Club the young and exciting Polaris Band comes down from MA and VT!  Our own Nick Boulet calls this evening!


Getting Started
We  have a FREE beginner’s lesson (more of an orientation) 30 minutes before the dance every time.  Since there is no fancy footwork in contra ( I like that fact, don’t you?) –  “If you can walk, you can dance.” 

Each individual dance is taught then called (to keep everyone on track….more or less) while the music plays and you walk patterns at a vigorous pace with partners, neighbors and other dancers.  You’ll interact with them by way of many hand holding as well as non-touching ways.  Its the easiest type of dancing there is and most fun and accessible! Once you come a few times you’ll learn the terms then the hardest part is remembering your left from your right.  🙂

No partner necessary!
Because it is community dancing, everyone dances with everyone else but you are welcomed and encouraged to bring friends.

Please bring clean, soft soled, non-marring,  shoes without spiked heels (heels should be 3/4″ width minimum) to preserve the fine floors we’re privileged to dance on and to make dancing comfortable and more fun for you.

Admission is received at the door with most people paying cash, but checks are also accepted.
