Can We Talk?
Do you have questions about our contra dance? Email or call one of our Steering Committee members.
Are you interested in booking a band and caller for your own dance? Email the CCD band and caller scheduler.
While we'd all like to think that contra dance is the one place in the world in which nothing bad is even capable of happening it actually takes a village to keep our dance the safe space that we all want it to be.

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!
