NEWS FLASH: We have changed the monthly date of our dances to the SECOND FRIDAY of each month.

Shake out the winter blues with Outermost Contra! Swing your partner, dosido your friends and neighbors, and let the music guide your feet!

Eastham caller Pat Nash will be calling a variety of dances – contras, mixers and maybe even some squares.  Each dance will be taught with a thorough walk-through before the great live music starts, with the intent of making all beginners feel comfortable.

Pat will be calling to the music of local band “Married to Corrigans,” and, yes, they’re all married to Corrigans: Stuart Moore on fiddle, Amy Corrigan on guitar and William Montague on banjo will pick up your spirits with lively old-time and Celtic dance favorites.

Contra dancing is the older cousin to the square dance. No fancy footwork needed – if you can walk, you can dance!  All the dances are taught and called. If you’re new to contra dance, be sure to get in on the early dances for the basic moves. No need to bring a partner; there are plenty of friendly people in this welcoming dance community. And don’t miss out on our delicious potluck at 6.

Outermost Contra is one of many contradances on the Cape, and was organized in December of 2014.  The contra dance is family friendly and welcomes dancers of all levels.

Community potluck at 6:00

Dance begins at 7:00

Suggested donation is $10. $20 maximum per group
