Contra dancing is a little like square dancing, except you get to dance with almost everyone there in the course of one dance. All dances feature live music (Old Time, New England, and Irish dance tunes). Callers lead mostly contradances, with occasional squares, mixers, and other dances forms as well. This type of dance has a devout and enthusiastic following around the world. BOTMDG is one of the oldest groups of its kind in the country, and has danced every Wednesday since the group started in 1972. No partner required. Wear whatever you like, with emphasis on cool and comfortable. Come early for free lessons, ~7:30.
