Four in Line, Down the Hall...
It takes a community to stage a contra dance and your involvement in ours is encouraged. From carrying speakers and sweeping the floor to helping organize a special event, there is room for everyone. CCD will benefit from your help and participation. Contact our volunteer coordinators for details.
Policy on Inappropriate Behavior
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 harassment of any kind
If a fellow dancer behaves in a manner that seems inappropriate, it is suggested that you make an effort to let that person know. If you are not comfortable speaking directly with them, please ask anyone on the steering committee to do so for you. Dancers who repeatedly exhibit inappropriate behavior can, and have been, asked to leave.
