Downtown Blacksburg, Inc is proud to present our Non-profit Member of the Month for August 2015
We have held a monthly dance for a number of years.
Contra dance is social dance done to live music and a caller who leads the figures. No partner necessary, no experience necessary, no fancy footwork. It’s about enjoying the music and connecting with your partner and the other dancers in the room.
Usually folks switch partners every dance, and it’s normal to dance with folks one has not met before. It’s a lot of fun, good exercise, and a great social opportunity.
Dances are held 3rd Saturday nights at the YMCA, 1000 North Main St. All ages welcome. All experience levels welcome. non-drinking non-smoking environment. Admission of $8 pays the band and callers and expenses.
Bands usually include a fiddle and the music is a wide variety of Irish, Canadian, old-time and other genres. We’d love for more Blacksburgians to join us!
