CONTRA DANCE IS NEW ENGLAND-STYLE FOLK DANCE, similar to Square Dancing.
It is partner dancing in a set, is "called" by someone who teaches the dances and then prompts to live music. IT IS SO MUCH FUN!
Celia Ramsay has been calling Contra dances since 2002, but has been telling people what to do for much, much longer. Celia chooses dances that fit the people in the room, uses clarity and brevity in teaching, and has a warm personality that makes the dancers happy.
