Contra dance is an American community dance form with lively jigs, reels and old-time music. Partners pair up for one dance; the one on the left is lark, the one on the right is the raven, and anyone can be in either role. The dance from has roots hundreds of years back, but the "larks" and "ravens" roles are cutting-edge, developed in the Bay Area in 2011. Alan is an experienced contra caller and will guide you through the figures even if you have no experience. For best results come at the beginning, and dance rather than watch. Gender-role-free teaching; LGBTQI+ welcome!

Live music!  "A contra dance is like an amusement park ride we make for ourselves."
