 Why Contra Dance?

*We used to call it a “Contra dance,” but the term “barn dance” sounds a little more familiar to folks. We still focus on contra dances, but we mix in several other kinds of dance too.
Live music by some of the finest bands in the NW and “called” by world-class callers.
All dances are taught and easy to learn

Dance to a mix of recorded waltzes alternating with rock, Latin, zydeco and more. Why? These kinds of dances are a relatively new tradition that grew up in the northwest and has become very popular. There are now two of these every week in Portland.

These are couple dances, BUT you are WELCOME to come alone, and encouraged to meet and dance with lots of different people. So, come alone, come with a friend, come with many friends. We will be happy to help out with learning any of the steps and we always have an easy  30 minute dance lesson starting at 7:30 .
