Contra Dance Weekend

contra dance

A Contra Dance sponsored by Southern MD Traditional Music and Dance, featuring caller Eva Murray, will be held on Saturday, March 10 at the the Christ Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 37497 Zach Fowler Rd, Chaptico, Maryland.

Eva was featured in the January 19 “First Person Singular” article in the Washington Post Magazine, talking about being a Contra Dance caller. The doors open at 7:00pm and the dancing begins at 7:30.

Contra is a traditional American style of social dance and is a huge amount of fun (and exercise)! If you’ve ever danced a Virginia Reel or been to a Square Dance, you have a good idea how much fun it can be. If you haven’t, it’s about time you tried it!

Beginners are encouraged to arrive at 7:00 to get some instruction in the various dances. Admission is $8 for non SMTMD members, $6 for members (band members are free). No Fancy Or Outlandish Clothing is Required! You need to be comfortable, to move freely. There will be an ice cream social following the dance.
