Come out and dance the old time dances of New England, to the traditional musical repertoires of New England, Canada, the British Isles and Appalachia. Contra dancing is the older cousin to the square dance. No fancy footwork _ all dances are led by a caller, and the music is always live and lively! Outermost Contra is one of many contradances on the Cape, and was organized in December of 2014. The contradance is family friendly and welcomes dancers of all levels. This month’s caller is Pat Nash, with great live music by fiddler Stuart Moore and Married to Corrigans!
Each dance starts with a “Contra Skills” session for dancers of all levels. Come early, whether you are a beginner or an experienced dancer who wants to refine your moves.
The next event is Friday, November 18th at 7:00 p.m. in the Wellfleet Preservation Hall. Note the new winter start time of 7:00. There is a Community Potluck at 6:00. Suggested donation is $10.
Outermost Contra hosts traditional New England contradances on the Outer Cape with live music every third Friday of each month.
