Rip the Calico will provide music with Ken Gall calling the dance. Arrive early for the beginners workshop at 6:30 pm.

In a contra dance, parallel lines of dancers stand opposite or "contra" to their partners. No fancy footwork, just simple figures, progressing up or down the line to eventually dance with everyone as the caller prompts to live music.

All ages are welcome. No partner or experience is necessary as the caller will teach each dance.

Dress is casual and wear soft flexible shoes for dancing.

Parking is available in the rear of the building.

The Floyd Contra Dance occurs on the second Saturdays from September through May at The Floyd Center for the Arts.

The Floyd Center for the Arts is located at 220 Parkway Lane in Floyd, VA, one mile south of Floyd, VA traffic light.
