NYC's only Gender Role-Free Contra Dance. Contra Dance is a traditional American folk dance which requires no prior dance training or experience—if you can walk, you can Contra Dance.
Traditional Contra Dancing is done with "Ladies and Gents" but at Gender Role-Free Dances we dance whichever role we like and with whomever we like. Live music and live calling. Lesson for beginners.
This series has been running for 16 years and is now back in its original venue at the newly renovated LGBT Community Center on west 13th street. Beautiful floor, wonderful acoustics, and some of the best callers and bands contra has to offer. Come and join us for a fun night out. Meet new people, get great exercise, and have a blast!
Our monthly dances are open to everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, gender expression, dance experience or number of left feet.
