Contra dancing is joyful and community oriented — and it always involves some risk. Starting with our July 1, 2023, dance, the Montpelier Contra Dance will be masks optional. As with all of our COVID policies, we ask that everyone be kind, gentle, and respectful with each other as we navigate this transition. We also want to be clear that everyone is welcome at our dance, whether or not you choose to wear a mask. You can read more about the reasoning behind this policy change here. Full COVID details at: capitalcitygrange.org/dancing/contradancing
Our dance uses gender-neutral role terms, and we strive to be a safe place for everyone to dance. Beginners, singles, and all ages are welcome; all dances are taught.
When: 1st, 3rd and 5th Saturdays, 8–11 p.m: newcomers lesson offered around 7:40 pm
Where: at the Capital City Grange in Berlin (located on Northfield Street/Route 12 just south of the I-89 overpass),
Cost: Admission is $12 for adults, $5 for kids or low-income, $20 for dance supporters–choose the right price for your budget!
What to bring: We suggest light, comfortable clothing — expect to wear short sleeves or a tank top, even in winter. Please bring clean, soft-soled shoes to preserve our floor. Bring a water bottle to refill at our water fountain/bottle filler.
