Contra Dance Calgary has been running monthly dances in the city for over 25 years. It's fun, social, and very easy to learn, even if you have no coordination or previous dance experience.

Show up with or without a partner. Contra Dances are inclusive, friendly, and open to everyone.

Contra Dancing is a modern social dance with roots in traditional folk dances. In the UK and USA weekly dances in major cities attract hundreds of people. Contra Dances are danced to live music, typically featuring a fiddle. You dance with a partner and constantly changing set of neighbors. A caller teaches each dance and calls out the moves.

Search on YouTube and you'll find lots of videos. Here's a good one.
