Looking for something to do on a Friday Night? Contra dancing is for you!

by | Aug 23, 2019

One of the hidden gems within our community happens every Friday night in the lower brick building of the Phinney Center: the beloved Emerald City Contra Dance.

Contra dance is a social folk dance that is led by a caller and always involves a live folk band. No partner or prior dancing knowledge is needed, just show up for the beginner workshop ready to learn and dance. Contra is an excellent workout, a ton of fun, and a great way to meet new people and interact with a vibrant community.

Beginner’s workshop at 7:00pm. Dance 7:30 to 10:00pm. Follow Emerald City Contra Dance on Facebook. See the schedule of bands and callers here.
