Contra dances return to Central Hall Commons

DOVER-FOXCROFT – Contra dances are returning to the Central Hall Commons. From 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 13, all are welcome to dance to the music of Some Reel People and the calling of Allison Aldrich Smith. Thanks to generous support from anonymous donors, the first dance will have free admission, though donations will be welcome at the door.

Contra is a traditional American folk dance for all ages and levels of experience. It’s about social interaction, moving to the music, and making friends. Contra dances are family friendly, open and inclusive, and alcohol free.
