Andrea Murray,

Brooklyn Contra supports the dynamic cultural evolution of traditional music and dance. We host a season of fun and accessible dances and exciting special events, as well as engaging educational programs for dancers, musicians, and callers. Brooklyn Contra creates an inclusive and safe environment in order to foster sustainable community growth. Brooklyn Contra is a local, community-based organization, who’s mission is to organize Contra Dances in Brooklyn. All dances are organized by volunteers, who do anything from booking bands and callers to coordinating publicity to schlepping sound equipment. If you have questions about the dance or if you would like to volunteer please email us at
