Rushfest is a contra dance to DJ'd music with colorful laser lights! Expect to hear all kinds of music including pop, rock 'n roll, tango, oldies, jazz. DJ music and calling will both be provided by Emily Rush.

Contra is a form of community folk dance made up of long lines of couples dancing in sequence. A contra dancer gets to dance with their partner and everyone else in their line! Each individual dance is taught and called by a 'caller' with music provided by a live band or DJ.

Admission is free for students and there is a $5.00 suggested donation for everyone else. Beginners, experts, students, locals, out-of-towners and all are welcome.

No experience or partner required.

Parking will be available in the Squire Student Center Lot or the Architecture Annex Lot and is free after 5:00 pm.
