Brooklyn Social: Contra dance and community

In partnership with Brooklyn Contra




7:30 pm - 11 pm

"If swing dancing and square dancing met in a bar, you’d get contra.” Contra dance is a powerful illustration of folk expression because of its ability to bring people together. Brooklyn Contra is a local community-based organization with the mission to organize Contra Dances in Brooklyn. Creating an inclusive, safe, and fun environment, Brooklyn Contra is tapping into a new generation of dancers and fostering sustainable community growth. We are pleased to bring a free Contra dance to the Folk Feet 10th Anniversary. A half hour workshop will start the program off so please come early! Music will be provided by Strumbow Squeezeblow (Bill Christophersen, fiddle; Jody Kruskal, concertina, vocals; Trip Henderson, harmonica; Ross Harriss, guitar; Marco Brehm, bass). The dance teacher and caller will be Mary Wesley. 

7:30pm (beginner lesson)
8-11pm (dance)
