See Something, Say Something ...
Contra is a high-spirited dance that is elegant, lively and fun. It also needs to be and to feel safe. To help ensure the safety of our dancers, CCD will not condone inappropriate behavior.
Inappropriate behavior includes, but is not limited to:
- Dancing in such a way that makes others feel physically challenged or threatened
- Actions that constitute sexual or non-sexual harassment of any kind

Policies: Loved Ones at the Dance
- Children are welcome to dance with us! For the safety of all, children may not be in the dance hall itself unless they are actually participating in the dance. Children in the lobby and hallways must be capable of behaving appropriately and parents are responsible for their children's behavior (and for their misbehavior).
- Experiencing an allergy or phobia attack can really put a damper on a dancer's evening so please leave your animal companions at home. You may want to show them a YouTube clip (see below) so they know what you are up to when you're gone.
Lights, Camera, Action!
