Contra dancing makes a great social evening because you don’t have to learn any footwork (just walk smoothly to the beat) and by the end of the evening you are likely to have danced with everyone else in the room. Ask someone to dance and form long lines. The lines are arranged so that you have your partner opposite you and your “neighbors” on either side of you. The caller will then walk everyone through some simple moves. Couples advance up or down the line so that you get new neighbors to dance with. Allemande, do-see-do, gypsy, circle, star, ladies’ chain, hey, swing – there aren’t many moves to learn – this is a dance form from which you can get full pleasure the very first time that you do it.
